Youth in Transition from
Foster Care Programs

The Child Protection Accountability Commission, with staffing from the Office of the Child Advocate, administers two programs for young adults who have experienced foster care in Delaware: the Post-Secondary Scholarship Program and the Driver’s License and Insurance Program.

The Post-Secondary Scholarship Program provides educational scholarship opportunities to young adults who have experienced foster care. The Program also coordinates with the Department of Services for Children, Youth and Their Families (DSCYF) to ensure these same young adults have access to the Delaware Fostering Independence Through Education Tuition Waiver Program. The Tuition Waiver Program waives the cost of tuition and all mandatory fees at public Delaware in-state schools (University of Delaware, Delaware State University, and Delaware Technical Community College) for eligible young adults.

The Driver’s License and Insurance Program provides youth and young adults who have experienced foster care access to a driver’s license and motor vehicle insurance by overcoming legal barriers and providing funding for driver education, costs incidental to licensure, and motor vehicle insurance.
