The Ramage Law Group Adopted Child Scholarship

Apply for Our Scholarship Today

At The Ramage Law Group, we work with families every day to address legal issues. We understand that families come in all shapes and sizes, and we know the importance of establishing strong family relationships. Adoption is one of the areas of family law that means the most to us. As the mother to two adopted daughters, Attorney Sharon Ramage understands the challenges that parents and children face in these situations, as well as the joys that come with building family bonds that will stand the test of time.

We know that parents who adopt children make many sacrifices, and they want to make sure their children will have the tools they need to succeed in life. In recognition of this, we have established a scholarship program that provides assistance to children who have been adopted. Each semester, we award a scholarship of $1,000 to a student who is pursuing a college education, and the funds may be used to help cover tuition, room and board, or other expenses, such as books and supplies.
