All students should have an equal playing field when it comes to pursuing higher education.
Unfortunately, students in the foster care system are often at a disadvantage when they begin applying to colleges. A lack of financial resources and mentors can make it difficult for foster students to navigate college applications and financial aid.
This scholarship seeks to support students who have experienced the foster care system on their journey to higher education.
Any high school juniors and seniors or first-year undergraduate students who are in or just out of the foster care system may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us how your experience in foster care has shaped your views on college and how you hope to give back to the foster care system in the future.
