Fostering Forward


BGSU has forged a new collaboration comprised of TRIO Student Support Services, Student Financial Aid and Scholarships, the Counseling Center and the Office of Admissions to improve college graduation and career achievement rates among current and prospective students that are aging out of the foster care system. In alignment with BGSU’s strategic direction of inclusion, the Fostering Forward collaboration strives to provide resources that inform, assist and inspire success in the following ways: 

  • Create successful transitions from foster care to college and college to career for students considering or currently attending Bowling Green State University 
  • Educate the community in the college-to-career pipeline about the needs, challenges, and discovery-driven solutions related to students from foster care within higher education 
  • Develop leaders among alumni of foster care to enhance the greater community  
  • Connect strong and enduring academic and professional networks on-campus and within the community
