The Emerging Scholars Program is a result of Central State receiving a $60,000 grant from Ohio Reach, a coalition working to improve higher-education outcomes for former foster youth. CSU, an 1890 Land-Grant Institution, is one of four universities to receive a multi-year grant to create a mentoring program to help former foster youth succeed in college.
“We want to make sure we are feeding them holistically” from admission through graduation, she said.
Twenty-five students will start the program this Fall. William Murray, IV,
Director of Ohio Reach, praised the CSU staff for investing in a population that for a long time has struggled at the college level. Ohio Reach improves post-secondary outcomes for foster care youth and alumni through leadership, empowerment, advocacy, research and networking.
