Post-High School Scholarships for Foster Youth
The National Foster Parent Association offers scholarships for foster youth who wish to further their education beyond high school, including college or university studies, vocational and job training, and correspondence courses (including the GED). Birth and adopted youth in foster homes are also eligible for scholarships.
Interested youth must complete an application, provide two letters of recommendation, and submit a 300-500 word essay on why they want to further their education and why they should be considered for the scholarship. Applications are due on March 31, 2005, and decisions will be announced by May 31, 2005.
