Success Stories This Year’s Graduates

2012 Graduates

Nationwide, less than 10 percent of foster youth graduate from college. With our support, that number rises dramatically: over 61 percent of our scholars graduate within five years Рa percentage higher than that of the overall U.S. population! Below is a list of of our 2012 Scholarship Program graduates (Casey Family Scholars and Sponsored Scholarship). Click here for a list of our new and returning Scholarship Program scholars.

A list of graduates from our Education Training Voucher program will be uploaded soon.

Congratulations to all!
