Getting Prepared for Graduate School

Created by the UC Davis Guardian Professions Program

This site has been specially developed for California's former foster youth. Whether you are a working professional thinking about heading back for a graduate degree, an undergraduate exploring career options, or a high school student thinking about the future, this site has much of the information you will need. Applying to graduate school is a complex process, but we've broken it down into steps and processes. There are suggestions, links to resources and examples of essays of successful applicants. The information is based on two years of work with former foster youth who have been successful in their pursuit of graduate degrees.
