Students in foster care face many challenges that the majority of their peers don’t have to worry about when pursuing higher education. 

Kids who are aging out of foster care, in particular, face barriers due to their lack of familial support and little to no safety net when stepping out into adulthood. With this background, coming up with the funds for college can be difficult or even impossible.

This scholarship aims to support students who have been in foster care to make their transition to college easier.

Any high school or undergraduate student in Georgia, Alabama, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, or Florida who is in foster care or has aged out of foster care may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about your plans to overcome the struggles you’ve faced to create a new future.
