The National Foster Parent Association offers up to six $500 scholarships to birth, foster, kinship, and youth adopted through foster care wishing to further their education beyond high school. The applicant's parent, or another supportive adult, must be a member of the NFPA. Scholarships are awarded to high school-level students who are graduating or getting their GED.
One $500 scholarship each year is designated the Gordon Evans Scholarship in memory of a man who gave so much of himself to the NFPA and the many children he fostered, as well as the untold numbers of people whose lives he affected.
