Frontiers Program: Foster Care Alumni

About the program

The Frontiers Program is designed to help improve college graduation rates of students who have experienced foster care. Nationally, between 1-9% of students who have been in foster care will graduate from higher education. TWU is working to drastically improve that statistic. Currently, the Frontiers Program has a higher graduation rate than the national average. All students need support and guidance while attending college. The Frontiers Program provides that support and assistance to guide foster alumni along the path to their degree.

The Frontiers Program is for students who are attending or who would like to attend Texas Woman’s University.
