provides college access resources to Utah's foster care community.

Impact Scholars provides college access services to Utah's foster care community by addressing barriers that often prevent college enrollment and degree completion. Impact Scholars serves anyone in Utah with foster care experience who is older than sixteen.

For students who study at the University of Utah or Salt Lake Community College, the support continues through graduation. At the U and SLCC, Impact Scholars offers multi-year holistic support, including mentorship, advising, scholarships, community and leadership development.

The mission of Impact Scholars is to ensure more foster care alumni enroll in and graduate from higher education.
