The Casey Family Scholars Program will award approximately 75 new scholarships for undergraduate study and career/technical training at accredited institutions and programs.
1. Have been in foster care for one consecutive year at the time of their 18th birthday OR have been adopted or taken into legal guardianship out of foster care or upon the death of their parents after their 16th birthday OR have lost both parents to death before the age of 18 and not been subsequently adopted or taken into legal guardianship.
2. Be enrolled in or accepted into an accredited post-secondary program at the undergraduate level (university, college, community college or vocational/technical institute.)
3. Be under the age of 25 on March 31, 2010.
4. Have been in foster care or orphaned while living in the United States. U.S. citizenship is not required.
The online application deadline is March 31, 2010 at midnight. I have attached a flyer (scholarships for foster youth). More information, including the application, can be obtained at the OFA Scholarships for Foster Youth Website. If you are the GAL for any qualifying foster child, please encourage them to apply.
