Approximately 50% of all foster children will graduate from high school.
Of those, approximately 20% will go on to pursue post-secondary education
at a community college, four-year college, or university.
We recognize the financial barriers that prevent foster youth from going off to college.
Tragic is Magic has given annual scholarships to foster youth attending college since 2016. Our scholarships help youth financially support themselves post graduation by landing a job offer that provides financially security.
