The Chafee Foster Youth Grant is offered to current or former foster youth who have a financial need. Up to $5,000 is available to qualified students each year.
How to Apply
The online Chafee Foster Youth Grant Application is available through the California Student Aid Commission (CSAC) website. You can also find a paper application there and more information related to the program, including up-to-date contact information.
You are required to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADA) and your school submits the Chafee Needs Analysis Report (NAR) to be evaluated for a Chafee Grant.
Note: Forms are year-specific. Be sure to complete the applications that correspond with the academic year you will be attending school.
