The Amish Descendants Scholarship Fund
The Amish Descendant Scholarship Fund (ADSF) was founded by a small group of former Amish with big dreams — to help other former Amish realize their dreams of earning a college education. Because the Amish only study to the eighth grade, it is challenging for those who leave the community to pursue a higher education. We hope to offer a helping hand by providing financial assistance and support. For more information about ADSF and how to apply, please visit our website: Amish Descendant Scholarship Fund.
