This policy brief examines disparities between foster youth and non-foster youth in postsecondary education. Data from the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS) provides information on foster youth in postsecondary education and their experiences and challenges obtaining a postsecondary credential. It also makes clear a need for additional research to better understand the needs of these students and how to support them.
