Scholar Students at the Donor Dinner on November 8, 2016.

Approximately 4,000 youth emancipate from the foster care system in California each year and less than 3% of the youth earn a college degree. The Guardian Scholars Program at Sacramento State is designed to help support former foster youth continue to strive and increase the number of college graduates. We offer support, encouragement and give the students a sense of belonging. When you become a part of the Guardian Scholars Program, you will have access to academic advising, career advising, professional mentoring, *priority registration, emergency funding, internship opportunities and community building. By being a part of the guardian scholars means more than just resources, you're part of a family, through college and beyond.
