Independent Scholars Network


Offering Support to Students from Foster Care

The Wright State University Independent Scholars Network (ISN) is a program for admitted Wright State University students who have been impacted by foster care. This program offers a bridge to students who emancipate from foster care or disengage from the adoption process into their new home at Wright State. ISN offers a wide range of services, including help with living arrangements and employment opportunities.

"Independent Scholars Network provides students with the necessary tools to survive in college and outside of college. ISN program is a great networking opportunity for students, and you are introduced to some great people who can become lifelong friends and mentors. The ISN program has changed a lot of student lives and will continue to help students grow through out their life and college career."
—Vicky Lindsey, ISN Graduate
