Support the Foster Youth Program – PATH Scholars – at Chico State.

Only 4% of foster youth graduate with a four-year degree. PATH Scholars actively works to increase this percentage by supporting the higher educational goals of current and former foster youth, as well as unaccompanied homeless minors. PATH is an acronym for Promoting Achievement Through Hope.

Life as a student can be rough. At times it is hard to balance academics, finances, and social well-being. In addition to assisting students navigate the academic system, it is our goal to help support our students financially and socially. We seek to promote the success and connectedness of our students by offering emergency funds (finances) and hosting social/cultural events (social well-being). With your support, we can ensure that students thrive, rather than just survive, during their college experience.

Every Gift Counts!

  • $15 provides a cultural/social activity for one student to keep them engaged with the program and their peers, i.e. a trip to the Pumpkin Patch.

  • $25 provides a student with personal hygiene/toiletry items for 2 months
  • $50 provides a PATH Scholar student professional attire for a job or graduate school interview
  • $100 provides access codes for online courses and supplies or transportation costs for students that do have family to visit during the holidays
  • $130 dollars will cover costs for a student to apply for graduation and to rent a cap and gown
  • $500 provides a housing deposit for student moving into their own apartment

You can help PATH Scholars thrive

With your support, we can ensure that students thrive, rather than just survive, during their college experience. In addition to assisting students navigate the academic system, the financial and social domains are often depleted but very essential. We are able to promote success and connectedness by offering emergency funds and social/cultural events. To learn more about PATH Scholars, visit:  www.csuchico.edu/fosteryouth/
