Important information resources under the Foster Youth College Success Initiative

from FYSA

Important exciting news that will help open the gates to a college education for young people, who are now, or previously were, in the foster care system. The New York State budget — approved on April 1, includes expanded resources and opportunities under the Foster Youth College Success Initiative a program designed to help foster youth successfully complete college.

Last year, 350 foster youth benefited from the program while attending public and private colleges and universities across New York. Based on this expanded funding, hundreds of new eligible students will be able to secure additional and funding but they must act now!

We ask for your immediate assistance, along with your NYSSCA colleagues, to let eligible students — any student who is currently, or was in foster care after their 13th birthday — and preparing to enter college in 2016, know that opportunity exists for them too. However, time is short. To this end, it is essential that students indicate their desire to access FYCSI resources at the time of their application for admissions.
