- College Bound Scholarship
The College Bound Scholarship program is an early commitment of state financial aid to eligible students who sign up in middle school and fulfill the scholarship pledge. Students who were in foster care between grades 7 and 12 grade are automatically enrolled in this program. Students who are eligible but don't know if they're enrolled should call the College Bound office at 888-535-0747 to check their enrollment status.
It’s important to understand the different kinds of aid students can receive. For more information on paying for school, visit our Finding Money for College page.
