The Foster Care to College Partnership is a three-year collaboration among six agencies to improve high school graduation and college enrollment rates among foster youth. One of the major initiatives undertaken by the partnership is a four-day summer program to encourage post-secondary enrollment and persistence among youth in foster care.

This report presents information from surveys filled out by participants at the first three summer programs. These surveys show an increase in readiness to apply to college, knowledge of how to apply for financial aid and pay for college, and knowledge of college life. Later reports by the Institute will examine whether the program affects college enrollment and college persistence rates.
