The National Foster Parent Association Youth Scholarship Fund was established to benefit foster, adoptive and birth children of NFPA members.
- One scholarship each year is designated the Gordon Evans Scholarship in memory of a man who gave so much of himself to NFPA and the many children he fostered, as well as the untold numbers of people whose lives he affected.
- Up to five scholarships of $500 are awarded annually.
- Scholarships may be awarded to current foster children, biological, or adopted children of an NFPA member.
Scholarship awards are granted for post-secondary education, including college/university, vocational, or job training.
