National Scholarship Month


Nationally foster youth who experience more placements are nearly 15% less likely to complete high school when compared to their peers and only 71% will receive a high school diploma by age 19. Approximately only 10% of former foster youth will attend college and, of that 10%, only 3% will graduate.

Below are some useful scholarship resources:
