Sen. Ruth Johnson urges eligible students to apply for Fostering Futures scholarship

LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Ruth Johnson is encouraging young adults who have experienced foster care on or after their 13th birthday to apply for a Fostering Futures scholarship.

The application period for 2021-22 academic year has been extended until Aug. 1. Eligible students enrolled at a Michigan degree-granting college or university may now apply to receive scholarship funds for tuition, fees, room, board, books and supplies.

“I encourage our young people who have been part of foster care to take advantage of this extra time to apply for a scholarship,” said Johnson, R-Holly. “This is a great opportunity for eligible students to continue their education beyond high school and achieve their career goals through hard work.”
