Post-Secondary Educational Benefits
Youth adopted from foster care or who are currently in foster care may qualify for certain post-secondary educational benefits. Youth may qualify for benefits based on age when adopted, if they are in extended foster care until age 21, if they have American Indian heritage, or if their family meets certain income guidelines.
This resource provides details on those specific educational benefits as well as a link to a wide variety of scholarships offered by Minnesota institutions.
