Our Programs

Foster Care to Success scholarships



We have listened to thousands of former foster youth who understand that academic college is not the only pathway to success! We are proud to announce that beginning in Spring 2024, we will open our scholarship program up to young people who need assistance to attend and complete certificate and professional programs as well as traditional 2 and 4 year college degrees.

The 2024-25 scholarship application will be available in May, it will offer those who feel left behind and left out the assistance they need to become plumbers, electricians, medical assistants and a range of professional options as well as those who need assistance to complete a traditional academic degree.

Please visit this page in May for more information and to be part of building Community Now, one young professional at a time.
