Diamond Family Scholar Program Objectives

Our goal is to increase successful outcomes among youth who have experienced foster care and are now transitioning into higher education at the University of Houston. Through the Diamond Family Scholars Program we seek to increase the retention rate and graduation rate of eligible UH students by providing:

  • Cost of attendance scholarships to undergraduate students accepted into the Diamond Family Scholars Program;
  • Hands-on support for eligible students in accessing financial aid and scholarships specific to youth who have experienced foster care, allowing students to maximize their potential to graduate from college with little to no debt;
  • Support for eligible students in need of year-round housing on campus to ensure a stable living environment;
  • Specialized orientation, advising, mentorship, and activities designed to assist eligible students with navigating the University of Houston;
  • A campus network and community that is dedicated to student success.
