Welcome to ACE Scholars Services, a comprehensive program that supports former foster youth at
California State University San Marcos.
“While others look at where you came from
We look at where you are going.”
Our mission — to transform the lives of foster youth through higher education. CSUSM serves more former foster youth per capita than any other university in the nation, with a professional staff to support an 88% retention rate — far greater than the national average of 50%.
Whether you are a prospective student looking to apply, a current student looking for resources, or a donor looking to transform a young person’s life, we invite you to learn more about ACE Scholars Services:
