Foster Postsecondary Success Program

The Minnesota Education and Training Voucher (ETV) program provides up to $5,000 a year to help students under the age of 26 who have aged out of foster care pay for college tuition and fees, room and board, books, supplies and living expenses. This money does not need to be paid back.
The grant application process is completed through the Minnesota Department of Children, Youth, and Families and grants amounts are determined by the state.
Youth who are awarded an Education and Training Voucher from DHS receive navigation and support to get to the postsecondary degree. We provide fiscal management of ETV grants, disperse funds for eligible expenses, and ensure young people are making progress towards their degree.

Join the Foster Postsecondary Success Advisory Board!
We are recruiting a Foster Postsecondary Success Advisory Board of young people who successfully applied for the ETV grant, those who currently use the ETV funds, and those who have previously used the ETV grant. We are looking for up to 10 representatives who have diverse backgrounds (geographically, type of postsecondary experience, race, gender, sexuality, and other experiences.) Leaders are compensated for their time and talent.
