Private Foster Youth Scholarships and Grants

FAFS’ Private Scholarships and Opportunity Grants provide foster youth with the support they need to complete their education and live independently. When you donate to FAFS’ Scholarship and Opportunity Grants, you give much more than money to a youth who has been in foster care.

You give a young man the chance to become a police officer – a goal he has set for himself so he can help children stay safe and become responsible, self-sufficient adults.

Foster Youth Scholarships

FAFS has awarded more than 200 private scholarships and opportunity grants for former and current NJ foster youth since 2004.

Who Are Our Recipients?

The majority of recipients of FAFS’ Private Scholarships pursue paths that allow them to give back to the community.

Why We Need You?

Education is crucial in the fight for the future of foster children. Only through your help can we change the outcomes of children in care.
