The Fostering Scholars program was established in 2006 at Seattle University in order to promote the educational attainment of current and former foster youth. The program is designed to identify students whose achievements and goals mirror the University’s mission and to allow these exceptional students to fully focus on their goals by providing financial, academic, and personal support towards the completion of an undergraduate degree.
“Because of the Fostering Scholars program, I am privileged to attend a wonderful university. I have the program advisors’ and counselors’ support. I have challenging classes that enable my skills and knowledge to expand every day.” Scholar, Class of 2013
At Seattle University, we want for our scholars what any parent would want for his/her own children – access to a great education, stable housing, health care, opportunities to study abroad and to engage fully in the college experience.
