University of California Foster Students Push For Changes

Take a look: this article by Sara Tiano sheds light on the frustrations and lack of resources of foster youth in the UC system.

"Foster youth face daunting odds when they enter colleges and universities. A leading study on California foster youth out of the University of Chicago found that while they aspire to higher education at similar rates to their peers, less than 6% graduate with a four-year degree. Among the barriers are housing and financial aid challenges, and the difficulty of working while attending school."

A group of foster youth attending the University of California has called for additional on-campus resources to address their barriers in higher education.
