Guardian Scholars Foundation


The Guardian Scholars Foundation seeks high school graduates who have shown a desire to continue onto an undergraduate program; young adults who have proven academic merit and drive; those who have exercised a motivation to succeed inside and outside of the classroom shown through leadership and good decision-making.  After meeting the minimum requirements set by the individual colleges, a potential Guardian Scholar must:

  • have graduated in good standing with a minimum of a 2.3 GPA from high school or have shown considerable improvement while attending secondary education and spent time in Iowa foster care between the ages of 14-18. Scholarships are for students from Iowa going to school in the state of Iowa.
  • gain admission to the chosen college(s) and receive their financial aid package.
  • submit a Guardian Scholars application and Release and Consent Form as soon as possible after gaining admission to college.

Applications are due March 1st for the upcoming Fall semester.  Submitting your application package as soon as possible after applying to your chosen colleges is encouraged.  Applications may be found at
