Fostering Success for Independent Scholars

Fostering Success for Independent Scholars is a program that is offered to students who lack the traditional family support afforded to most of their peers. Typically, these students have multiple adverse childhood experiences including, but not limited to:

  • Foster care
  • Orphan 
  • Guardianship
  • Unhoused or at risk of being unhoused (homeless)
  • Neglect, abuse, and/or abandonment (FAFSA Dependency Override) 

This program provides additional grant aid to those students in financial need. Fostering Success for Independent Scholars also collaborates with Student Support Services to provide students guidance and resources necessary to succeed.

Fostering Success for Independent Scholars proudly supports students!
