All Iowa Opportunity Foster Care Grant
The All Iowa Opportunity Foster Care Grant program provides grants to students who were previously adjudicated in the Iowa Foster Care System.
This grant program, which can cover up to the full cost of attendance, may be used for a range of education or career training programs.
In the event that available state funds are insufficient to pay the full amount of each approved grant, the Iowa College Student Aid Commission has the authority to administratively reduce the award.
