ACF Youth in Foster Care Scholarship Program

The Youth in Foster Care Scholarship Program will make awards to young adults aging out of foster care who want to develop a marketable skill or continue their education at a post-secondary school. They hope they can positively impact the lives of young people who have already suffered from the insecurity of an unstable childhood. Applicants must be a New Mexico resident for a minimum of one year, have been in the New Mexico foster care system for a minimum of one year, be between the ages of 17 and 21 at time of initial application, and have a minimum 2.5 GPA for high school.
