Our Programs Scholarships and Grants

FC2S partners with organizations, foundations, and individuals to deliver scholarships to foster youth across the country. With this funding and our support, hundreds of young people reach their educational goals every year.










Foster Care to Success has provided scholarships since 1991;  in 2000 we restructured the program and since then have awarded over $15M to 2,000 students in all 50 states. We are proud of our graduation rate of 65%, with a persistence rate of 75% – both higher than those of the general population of college students.

Casey Family Programs (CFP) – We have worked with CFP since 2000 to administer the Casey Family Scholarship Program for undergraduate students, as well as special scholarships for youth of color and graduate students.  As CFP redirects their organizational focus to the 2020 vision and Communities of Hope, their scholarship funding is being invested in credential programs at community colleges that offer a streamlined pathway to the workforce.  For this reason, the Casey Family Scholarship Program will no longer accept new students.  Foster Care to Success and the many CFSP graduates and program alumni appreciate their long-time support.

The Casey Family Services Alumni Scholarship – This program is open to those who were part of Casey Family Services Foster Care in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island or Vermont, and provides up to $10,000 over the course of a college career.

CEJT: Continuing Education and Job Training Program – This program is open to those who received services from Casey Family Programs in Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Washington or Wyoming and covers vocational, undergraduate and graduate studies.

Education and Training Vouchers (ETV) – Foster Care to Success administers this federally-funded, state-run college grant program for foster youth in seven states (Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Maryland, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio) and the District of Columbia.  In most states, eligible students may receive grants of up to $5,000 per academic year.
