2024 Foster-ing Education Scholarship

Fostering Education Scholarship

Attorney Chris Jones is passionate about working with South Carolina’s youth and has mentored young people who have gone through the foster care system. Attorney Jones believes strongly in supporting younger generations, especially those in need.

The foster care system has its challenges, but valuable lessons can be learned through those experiences. The Foster-ing Education Scholarship aims to support any student who has participated in the foster care system and is motivated to pursue their dreams. This scholarship is open to students pursuing higher education at a community college, trade school, or university level.

Students are asked to share their stories, the trials they overcame, the unique relationships they made, and how their childhood shaped them into who they are today.

This is a $2,500 scholarship award. The deadline to apply is October 31, 2024. Continue reading below for more details.
