OCCC recipient of $200,000 Arnall Family Foundation grant


Oklahoma City – The Arnall Family Foundation recently awarded a $200,000, two-year grant to the Oklahoma City Community College Foundation. The grant will allow OCCC to establish the Fostering Higher Education program to support students formerly in foster care.

The OCCC Fostering Higher Education program will address three main areas of support: academic advising, scholarships and targeted financial support. Research shows that, on average, former foster students succeed at a rate 8% lower than the overall student success rate. Foster youth aging out of the system also have a much lower median income—only $5,450 per year– compared with $50,960 for an associate degree graduate, according to the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. 

“We are keenly aware of the additional challenges faced by youth who were formerly involved with the foster care system,” said Sue Ann Arnall, president of the Arnall Family Foundation. “We are grateful that OCCC is stepping up to address their unique needs through this innovative program.”
