BILL NUMBER:S1370

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the education law, in relation to creating the "foster care
higher education scholarship pilot
program"; and providing for the repeal of such provisions
upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE OF BILL:
Establish a foster care higher education scholarship program for youth
who are receiving, or have received, foster care services in New York
State

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section one creates a title for the foster care higher education
scholarship pilot program.

Section two amend section 604 of the education law by adding a new
subdivision 13, creating the foster care higher education scholarship
program.

Section three amends the education law by adding a new section 668-h.
This section enacts the program and includes necessary definitions,
eligibility requirements, and the parameters of the Scholarship
award. The section provides that scholarship awards will be equal to
the cost of tuition for a state resident at a New York State public
university or a New York City public university. This section also
establishes an assessment on the success of the program.

JUSTIFICATION:
Many youth who age out of foster care have little to no support from
adults. Like other 18-21 year olds, these young people sometimes need
that support to avoid dropping out from college. Indeed, a recent
Chapin Hall study of youth who were in foster care found that
approximately 40% had dropped out of 2-year college and 55% of those
who had dropped out of 4-year college did so because they were not
able to afford to continue their education.

By supplementing the federal educational and training vouchers which
are available to these students, it is expected that more students
will be enabled to complete their studies and flourish as young
adults. This bill establishes a pilot program to demonstrate the
effectiveness of this contention.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2011-2012: S.371 - Died in Committee

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately and shall expire four years
after the bill is enacted.
