dc.description.abstractCollege attendance has been demonstrated to be a factor in lifetime income level, quality of life, better health, and decreased strain on government financial support systems. Yet, the privilege of attending college continues to be disproportionately distributed to certain demographic groups. Among these are youth adults emerging from the foster care system. While 70% of foster care children indicate a desire to attend college, less than 10% actually do so. Kansas Kids @ GEAR UP is a program which targets foster care children in an effort to help them prepare for postsecondary education. Student participants from the Kansas Kids @ GEAR UP program were surveyed to determine their educational aspirations and expectations.en_US
