Thank you for visiting the College Choice Program, an initiative from NYC’s Administration for Children’s Services (ACS), in partnership with The New York Foundling.
The College Choice Program supports youth in foster care who are attending college full-time. The program was established in the summer of 2022 with the goal of making significant enhancements to several programs that were already operating under ACS’ College Initiatives: The Fostering College Success Initiative (the “Dorm Project”), Fostering College Success Stipend, and College Room and Board. The purpose of making these changes was to give students more flexibility and options around what types of support they need while attending college, including where they can live.
Please see the Program Summary Sheet for complete program details.
