Support Fostering Scholars

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.

Gifts to Fostering Scholars will be matched 1:1, up to $15,000 total.

The impacts of your gift

“College has opened up many doors that would not have been opened up to me had I not worked toward a degree. I am well aware that only 2% of foster youth graduate college. I am proud to be counted among them.” Paula Carvalho became the first fostering scholar to graduate when she received her undergraduate degree in 2008. She also holds a Master in Teaching from Seattle U.
