The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to secure funds and design a support program to increase the likelihood that emancipated foster youth in college will succeed academically and graduate. The program would be developed in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services Transitional Housing Placement Program. The program will offer services for youth who are attending college and need assistance in choosing classes, applying for stipends, and managing time; tutoring; and attending a support group to address ongoing personal problems.
The literature review revealed that foster youth are at risk for school failure and that independent living services are beneficial. The grant writer conducted an extensive review of potential funding sources. The funding source selected was the Stuart Foundation. The grant writer hopes that this program will assist emancipated foster youth in attending and graduating from college.
