The purpose of this study was to explore the educational backgrounds and experiences of Black male collegians formerly in foster care. Interviews were conducted with 11 Black male foster care alumni who were current students or recent graduates of degree-granting postsecondary institutions. During this qualitative study, Black male collegians formerly in foster care (BMFCCs) were interviewed via one-on-one, semi-structured interviews. Themes surrounding (a) college-going motivations, (b) college-going and transition processes, and (c) collegiate experiences of Black male collegians formerly in foster care emerged after analysis of interview data. Implications for policy, practice, and future research are discussed.
