IT’S NO SECRET, COLLEGE IS EXPENSIVE!

We awarded over $489,000 in college scholarships during 2017. That's just not enough. 

College-Scholarships

We don't like debt.

Our goal is for foster youth to earn their college degree debt-free. When our students graduate from college, they don’t have the luxury of going home to live with their parents. They have to support themselves, and having debt makes that hard. Our coaches work closely with students to ensure they apply for and receive the maximum financial aid they’re eligible for as foster youth. 

We offer community college students a $3,000 Pivotal scholarship to help offset expenses for tuition and books. For our students at 4-year colleges, universities, or private vocational programs, we offer a $5,000 scholarship.
