Guardian Scholars Program

Guardian Scholars


The Guardian Scholars Program is committed to helping current and former foster youth college-bound students complete their educational goal in areas such as:  Associate Degree, Transfer, and Certificates by providing comprehensive support services.


The program provides direct services, such as academic counseling, financial aid assistance, book vouchers and transportation passes, to assist with college costs, and referrals to community-based resources as needed and available.

To further limit the potential of COVID-19 spreading within our local community, City College of San Francisco temporarily suspended face to face student services and instruction effective Friday March 13–March 20. Student Services will use these days to prepare for the transition to remote delivery of student services on Monday March 30.  Please note, CCSF will be closed for Spring Break March 23 – March 27.

For questions or to request assistance effective March 30 please contact Elaine Bautista (see right side)
