About the event
We are honored to present Jacob Gross, Associate Professor of Higher Education Administration at the University of Louisville. His presentation, entitled How Former Foster Youth Finance Their Higher Education, will discuss the following:
Former foster youth are more likely than peers in higher education to come from a low-income family, yet they are less likely to apply for and receive financial aid. Despite high aspirations, paying for college represents a real barrier to attaining a higher education for former foster youth. This presentation will discuss these barriers along with the common ways in which former foster youth finance their education. Implications for practitioners at the high school and college level will be discussed.
