About the NFPA Youth Scholarship

The National Foster Parent Association offers scholarships to NFPA members whose birth, foster and US adopted youth wish to further their education beyond high school, including college or university studies, vocational/technical school or junior college.  

Scholarships will be awarded to high school-level students who are graduating or getting their GED in 2017.  The foster/adopt/birth parents must be or join as a member of NFPA.
