Scholarships for Youth in Foster Care

Scholarship icon

The Foster Care Youth Endowed Scholarship Program, available through MSU’s School of Social Work and the Office of Admissions and Scholarships, provides a limited number of tuition-and-living-expense scholarships to incoming MSU freshmen who have spent part of their childhood or adolescence in a court-ordered foster care placement in Michigan. Recipients of the scholarship are matched with MSU alumni who have offered to serve as mentors. In addition to offering encouragement and advice, the mentors help students arrange for housing over the holidays and spring/summer breaks, and assist them in finding other sources of financial support, including employment.
