As part of Fanning’s youth leadership development work, the Education and Training Voucher (ETV) program is a partnership with the Georgia Division of Family and Children’s Services to provide leadership programming and necessary funding to meet the postsecondary education needs of youth who have experienced foster care.
To be eligible for the program, youth must have been in foster care for at least 6 months (non-consecutive) and in care at 14 years of age or older. Youth who have achieved permanency through guardianship or adoption after the age of 14, must contact their Independent Living Specialist to determine eligibility.
These funds are limited to the pursuit of an undergraduate degree, diploma, or certificate. This program supplements, rather than replaces, other types of financial assistance available to the youth. Additional leadership training, college awareness opportunities, and connection to campus services is provided through the ETV UGA team.
