Welcome to ACE Scholars Services

We are a comprehensive, top-tier program that supports former foster youth at California State University San Marcos. Our mission is to transform the lives of foster youth through higher education — and we're doing exactly that.

CSUSM serves more former foster youth per capita than any other university in the nation. Thanks to our professional staff and donor support, we're able to support an 86% persistence rate — far greater than the national average of 50%.
