Children raised in the foster care system often struggle through unique challenges that for the most part, fall on deaf ears. 

It’s projected that 30% of foster children have severe emotional, behavioral, or developmental problems as a result of the trauma they’ve been subjected to. Physical health problems are also common within the space. It’s not hard to see why many children in the foster care system feel neglected, unwanted, or unimportant. 

To help students who have been impacted by an experience in the foster care system, the Ashley M. Lopez Foster Care Scholarship will be awarded to one high school senior or undergraduate student who is or was part of the foster care system.

To apply, please write a bit about yourself and what you plan to accomplish with your education.

Selection Criteria:
Essay, Foster Child, Ambition, Impact
