Western University – along with its affiliated colleges King’s University College, Brescia University College, and Huron University College – has joined Laurentian University, Loyalist College, and Georgian College in a new program to expand postsecondary opportunities for people who have been in foster care. 35 students from Western and its affiliated colleges who have spent time in care will receive financial support. The program, spearheaded by the Child Welfare Political Action Committee, aims to ensure that finances are not a barrier to attaining postsecondary education for students who have been in foster care.
