Promise Scholars Program

Hope for a Brighter Tomorrow

The Promise Scholars Program was designed to guide our work in developing purposeful programming that improves the retention and graduation of foster youth on campus.  This support is crucial in better understanding the unique needs of our students, and how we as a campus can foster internal and external partnerships to better support our Warriors.   

Research shows that without extended support most young adults who transition out of youth foster care, face enormous challenges in building successful lives. Helping these young people overcome past challenges through higher education, is a top priority at Stanislaus State.
