Curt VanderWall is encouraging all those eligible to apply for the Michigan Department of Treasury’s Fostering Futures Scholarship. The Fostering Futures Scholarship is a scholarship program for young adults that have experienced foster care.Eligible students enrolled at a Michigan degree granting college or university are welcome to apply for the scholarship by June 30. The scholarship assists students with tuition, fees, room, board, books and supplies by providing up to $3,000 based on the need of individual students. There has been almost $4.6 million awarded to students since 2014.“The Fostering Futures Scholarship is a wonderful way to help those who have been through the foster care program. So many of our foster care youth reach 18 years old and leave the foster care program but have no resources to put towards their education,” VanderWall said. “I encourage all those eligible to apply for this amazing opportunity.”To apply for the Fostering Futures Scholarship, visit their website at www.fosteringfutures-mi.com.
