Fostering Success and Independence (FSI) is an active partner in creating a supportive college experience where students, regardless of family support, have an equal opportunity to obtain their degree. Through partnership with campus resources we promote independence and academic success.
FSI serves UW-Whitewater students without traditional familial support, including students who have been in foster care, have experienced homelessness, have deceased, deployed, incarcerated, deported, institutionalized, or otherwise unavailable family structures.
Financial contributions can be made via the UWW Foundation. Select "Foster Youth Strategic Funding" from the dropdown menu under designation.
