Former Foster Youth Scholarship

Make the Sam Houston State University Difference for Former Foster Youth

The unfortunate reality for many youth formerly in foster care is that they do not have the resources or support to successfully complete a college education.  Generous support from alumni and friends like you help provide our former fosters, orphans, or wards of the state with the best professors, facilities, technology, and success in fulfilling a college career.  
With a donation to the Former Foster Youth Scholarship at Sam Houston State University you can know that your support will help provide bright, curious students with life-changing opportunities that prepare them not only for real-world success but also to make a difference in communities across the nation and around the world.
