Scholarship Fund

The San Francisco Foster Youth Fund is proud to provide college scholarships to current and former foster youth who have been served by San Francisco’s Human Services Agency’s Family & Children’s Services.

These youth are high school graduates who strive to continue their studies. The scholarships provide modest financial assistance intended to supplement the student’s other funding. They help with any uncovered expenses, including those small extras which they may not otherwise by able to afford, such as books, clothing, or participation in extracurricular activities.

Our current scholars attend the following colleges:

  • CSU – Channel Islands

  • CSU – Chico

  • CSU – Dominguez Hills

  • CSU – Los Angeles

  • CSU – Monterey Bay

  • Laney College

  • Sacramento State

  • San Francisco State

  • Sonoma State

  • UC Merced

  • UC Riverside

  • UCLA

  • University of San Francisco

  • Vanguard University

I was a very lucky and blessed person indeed to have been able to be a recipient of your organization.
Gabrielle, College graduate, former foster youth, and SFFYF scholarship recipient
Thank you for all you have done for me. I am truly grateful to God for sending someone like you in my life. All the help and support really helped and now I am finished with school. I love you from the bottom of my heart.
Alice J., A SFFYF scholarship student who had just graduated
Dear SFFYF: Your support and encouragement has greatly helped me on my educational path. I am grateful for this much needed opportunity because as we all know it is very difficult for former foster youth to graduate without help. I plan to graduate next year with 2 associate degrees in music and general education. I then plan to study abroad and earn a Masters of Fine Arts. Thank you again for your support.
S.G., A SFFYF scholarship recipient
Thank you for this wonderful scholarship because it makes it possible for me to attend college. One thing I learned in college is that every penny counts!
