About the NFPA Youth Scholarship

The National Foster Parent Association offers scholarships for foster youth, adopted youth, and biological youth of currently licensed foster parents, who wish to further their education beyond high school, including college or university studies, vocational/technical school or junior college.  This scholarship is focused on high school-level students who are graduating or getting their GED in 2016.  If you have already graduated from high school, you are no longer eligible.  The foster parents must be members of NFPA.
