Family Scholarship Policies
Current non-adoptive, post-adoptive, and kinship foster families need to have a transracial child placed in their home at the time of registration (the focus of the camp is African American children, but will accept any transracial placement at the time of registration), be of African American descent or be open to the placement of a Black child in the near future to receive the grant.
Children need to have been placed through the MN foster care system and the family has to be a current resident of Minnesota to receive the scholarship.
Multiple Use Policy
After the first attendance at UMOJA between July 1 – June 30th (our fiscal year), families who wish to access the scholarship for another camp in that same time period will be put on a waiting list. If there are scholarships remaining one month prior to the event, repeating families are eligible to receive scholarships, based on when they submitted their application (with priority placed on post-adoptive foster families).
Conflict of Interest Policy
EVOLVE staff and volunteers whose job duties include working at the event may not access the family scholarships. EVOLVE staff and volunteers whose job duties do not include working
