Students

Welcome Prospective Wily Scholar,

We are so glad you have come to this website to learn more about becoming a Wily Scholar.  We are collaborating with Boston-area colleges to work side-by-side with students who are foster care alumni or are attending college without the support of a permanent family.

Each year, young men and women like you make the choice to continue their education in hopes of building a strong community and attaining a career that enables them to support themselves.  

For many young people who have had experience in foster care or lack permanent families, there are challenges to reaching for a college degree. You have had more stressors in your life than your fellow college applicants. 

The Wily Network can help you reach your dream of graduating from college and finding a lifelong community to stay with you after graduation. We offer practical support with finances, housing, and personal well-being. We also offer coaching to help you learn to navigate obstacles on your own.

Make your dreams come true by beginning the college application process today. If you have already been admitted to a college and are interested in the Wily Network, please contact us and we will see if we can help you succeed.
