Cal State Fullerton's Guardian Scholars Program is committed to supporting current and former foster youth exiting the foster care system. Guardian Scholars are exceptional when they enter the program – exceptional for their ambition and determination to earn a college degree despite the difficulties and disappointments they have been handed in life. Since 1998, the program has helped over 100 scholars earn their undergraduate degrees. Beyond that, many Guardian Scholars have gone on to receive Master’s degrees in top-level fields such as social work, counseling, education, and international business.
Funds raised will assist these youth as they design their university experience, work lives and futures.
