The College Choice Program, in collaboration with The Fostering College Success Initiative (FCSI), provides academic, financial, and social support to help young people in foster care succeed in college and beyond. Working in partnership with college and university students in foster care, participants can receive access to specialized tutoring, coaching, and career counseling; as well as housing support, tuition & fees assistance, and a daily living stipend.

The College Choice Program is an initiative from NYC’s Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), in partnership with The New York Foundling.
