Forward Steps Guardian Scholars Scholarship
Forward Steps helps Colorado youth transition from foster care to success by investing in their development, well-being, and breaking their dependency on social support. As a dedicated resource, we make a strong commitment to collaborate with each and every student, providing an individual focused program that stresses post-secondary education. We do this by offering the Forward Steps Guardian Scholars Scholarship for emancipated foster youth in Colorado. The scholarship is for the unmet financial needs of up to $6,000 per academic year.
