Wayne State - Transition to Independence Program (TIP)

The Transition to Independence Program (TIP) is a comprehensive student support program that provides both tuition scholarships and wraparound support services to foster care youth enrolled at Wayne State University.

All units house designated champions that have participated in a series of trainings to become more sensitive to the unique needs and challenges of foster care youth. There are no age restrictions put on foster care youth in accessing services offered by campus champions.

TIP also works with a plethora of off-campus partners who provides students with access to a number of free services ranging from assistance with legal issues to ETV enrollment. Students also have opportunities to engage in various leadership programs across Detroit and South East Michigan.
