This is meant to be an informative resource guide for foster youth/foster care alumni students, as well as their caregivers, educators, and other supportive adults in their lives. The majority of the postsecondary education funding options listed are NOT provided directly by the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) or its individual institutions (although, some are). The information provided is reviewed and updated on an annual basis, but students should always verify that the information is up-to-date with the entity providing the funding. If you are interested in any of the financial aid resources listed here, please directly contact the entity providing the funding to verify the current status and details of the funding resources—using the website/contact information provided.
For support with navigating any of these resources, and/or the other resources and services available through the NSHE Foster Youth Success Initiative, please reach out to Laura Obrist, NSHE Foster Youth Ambassador:
