Abstract

The current study sought to look at college student’s perceptions on the success rate of foster students and their likelihood of graduating from a university. It was predicted that students would perceive foster students less likely to graduate from a university over their counterparts and that men would perceive the likelihood of foster youth graduating at a lower rate than women would. Men and women were presented with a brief story and asked to rate the likelihood of the individual graduating. Individuals either received a story about a foster youth attending college or one that had an individual who was raised with their birth-parents. Data will be analyzed using a 2 x 2 Analysis of Variance. Implications of the obtained findings and future directions will be discussed.
