Fostering Futures Scholarship Trust Fund offers college scholarships for former foster children – 95.3 MNC

More than 10,000 youth are in the Michigan foster care system run by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and now is your chance to help those aging out of the system.

The Fostering Futures Scholarship Trust Fund provides college scholarships to students who have been in the foster system.

WSJM reports that all of the proceeds go toward helping youths stay in college and graduate.

While 70% to 75% of youth who have aged out of the foster system express some desire to pursue a higher education, only about 10 percent enroll in college, and even less graduate.

Fostering Futures not only helps get youth into college, but it helps provide them with support services while on campus.

You can support the program with an online donation.

Hey i am Arif
I have a love for wildlife and in particular birds as they are so easy to get a close look at. I love to talk about birds, research them, go birding, birdwatch in my backyard and keep a few as pets. I wanted to share this love of birds with everyone so you can also appreciate these fascinating creatures.

I attend bird walks and talks whenever I get the chance so that I can learn more from the experts. There is always something new to learn or see with birding.

After studying a natural sciences degree I then entered the corporate world working for online travel companies. We now live in a forest and near a beach and I have not looked back since. You can usually find me out paddleboarding or kayaking or hiking through the forest, always with some binoculars!

I am here to help you find all the information you need about bird identification, birding tips, backyard bird watching, bird facts with guides, and free printables.
