San Francisco State University's Guardian Scholars Program (GSP) is a comprehensive program of the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), in collaboration with the School of Social Work which serves former foster care youth who are pursuing their undergraduate degrees. Launched in the Summer 2005, the GSP is a new program at SF State that is tailored to fit the needs of undergraduate students who were formerly in foster care. The individual case management services offered will enhance EOP's current academic focus. The Guardian Scholars Program partners with on campus departments, and works with off-campus social service groups to ensure a pipeline for CSU eligible youth in foster care. The combined partnership of SF State's Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) and the SF State School of Social Work defines a commitment to student success and empowerment with a goal of graduating Guardian Scholars who are self-supporting, conscious community leaders, role models and successful professionals.
