Child Abuse Prevention Foundation

This fund provides scholarships to former foster youth of San Diego, CA to help ease the financial burden of attending college.

Sponsor: Child Abuse Prevention Foundation


CAPF Guardian Scholars supports ambitious former foster youth in their efforts to gain a university, community college or vocational school education. The goal is to provide each student with personalized support in areas such as academic advising, housing, and mentoring. Emancipated foster youth have unique needs that most adults are unaware of because of their challenging life experiences and their lack of a supportive family structure. These life challenges are often insurmountable without adult mentoring, educational opportunities, financial support and caring role models.
