Unconquered Scholars Program

The Unconquered Scholars Program provides an array of support services promoting overall success to youth who experienced foster care, homelessness, relative care, or ward of the State status. Many Scholars have faced profound hardships during childhood that may increase their risk of leaving academia without a degree. In fact, research indicates former foster youth are far less likely to earn a degree than their non-foster care peers. Florida State University is committed to meeting the unique needs of Unconquered students so they experience the long-term professional and personal benefits associated with educational attainment.

Through collaboration with campus partners, the Unconquered Scholars Program offers the following services:

  • One-on-One Advising
  • Summer Bridge Program
  • College Life Coaching
  • Academic Advising
  • Financial Aid Assistance and Advocacy
  • Tutoring Services
  • State of the Art Computer Lab and Study Suites
  • Mental Health Counseling Services
  • Academic and Skills Workshops
  • Volunteer Opportunities
