Of those living in foster care in the US, 42% are white, 24% are black, and 22% are Hispanic…. but 100% of those in foster care are under the age of 18.
For those in foster care, what happens after they reach the age of majority? or as they say in the social services sector, what happens once these foster children age-out of the system?
For many, college is not a possibility because they do not have family to support them. For many, their standard of living declines drastically because they no longer have social services supporting them.
If you or someone you know is in the foster care system, take a look at this website – College Scholarships.org. You’ll find several resources for grants and scholarships to help fund college education for foster kids.
CollegeScholarships.org is a great resource for college bound students who need support. Check out the other resources they offer low income students.
