Offered by Foster Care to Success
Have you either previously been an orphan, in foster care, or adopted at any time before your 18th birthday? If so, you may be eligible for the Foster Care to Success Scholarships. The scholarships are offered annually to students who have been in public or private foster care for the 12 consecutive months leading up to and including their 18th birthday, been adopted or placed into legal guardianship after their 16th birthday, or been orphaned for at least one year at the time of their 18th birthday and not subsequently adopted. Applicants must also be under the age of 25 and have received acceptance into or be currently enrolled in an accredited, Pell-eligible undergraduate program.
