Scholarship Being Offered for Young Men of Color

5/12/2005:   The Orphan Foundation of America (OFA) is promoting the Casey Family Program's Senior Year Scholarship for young men of color in college and vocational training programs. The nonrenewable scholarship of up to $5,000 can be used toward unmet tuition needs or outstanding student loans.

OFA asks for your assistance in its ongoing efforts to reach out to these young men, who must be in their final year of college or a technical program, and who can verify their status as having aged out of the U.S. foster care system.

Since October 2004, about 40 awards have been made. The deadline for expending the funds is December 31, 2005. To learn more, and to apply online, visit http://www.orphan.org/casey_family_scholarships.html.
