Western Michigan University and Fostering Success Michigan produced a resource guide featuring a variety of postsecondary education supports for Michigan's foster care alumni. The four-page guide lists Michigan colleges that offer both programming and scholarship supports dedicated to increasing access to and success in postsecondary education for youth. Contact information is also provided for each college program.
Additionally, the guide highlights Michigan State University's (MSU's) precollege program, the FAME Summer Camp. FAME Camp is a 3-day program for youth in care who are considering attending college. The program aims to inform students about financial aid eligibility, student life at MSU, and other important college preparation topics.
