About 10,500 youth are in the Michigan foster care system. While as many as 75% of foster youth express a desire to attend college, fewer than 10% enroll in college after high school and fewer than 3% eventually earn a degree. The Fostering Futures Scholarship Trust Fund provides former foster care students who may not have family support or financial resources to attend college, with a scholarship. Michigan students who experienced foster care can receive college scholarships through the Fostering Futures Scholarship Trust Fund.
