TEACh Scholarship Fund
Awarded to graduating high school seniors or high school graduates (or GED recipients) who are or have been in formal foster care, as verified by a third party, and either currently reside in Ventura County or did reside in Ventura County while in foster care or whose foster care dependency originated in Ventura County. Awards are only for current and former foster youth who will attend or are attending an accredited community college, trade or technical school, or accredited 4-year college or university. There are additional opportunities for eligible applicants to this fund including the TEACh Opportunity Fund Scholarship for students who meet all criteria but may be 25 years or older, pursuing undergraduate or graduate level studies. TEACh Scholarship awards are not renewable but prior recipients may re-apply for consideration in successive years.
Special Requirement: Awards are only for current and emancipated foster youth who are or have been in foster care or a group home in Ventura County.
