GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Approximately 10,000 children are in the Michigan foster care system. Many of those exiting foster care have the desire to go to college but they face limited financial resources and support systems. The Fostering Futures Scholarship Trust Fund has provided college scholarships to over 1,400 students with experience in foster care in Michigan.
Diane, with Michigan Education Trust, joins us today to talk about the scholarship and about the organization’s upcoming fundraising dinner taking place next week.
