Scholar House 3

Columbus Scholar House for Former Foster Youth serves young people ages 18-24 with a foster care history. Consistent with the Scholar House model, residents of the project are expected to maintain full-time status at an accredited two or four-year College or University.

There are currently open units for residents to apply. Former foster youth ages 18-24 can fill out an interest card here and learn more about the application process here.

Housing for former foster youth is a vitally important need, both nationwide, and throughout the state of Ohio. Here is a link to additional photos of Scholar House 3.

History of This Project
Ohio foster care youth and alumni have been working with the Columbus Metropolitan Housing Authority and Columbus State Community College since 2017 to propose and design Scholar House 3 for former foster youth pursuing higher education.

We were honored and privileged to have a voice in deciding what services would be needed, and to vote on specific elements related to building design.

Our project was chosen as a secondary priority for the 2018 Qualified Allocation Plan’s set aside for Transitioning Aged Youth, and was ultimately funded by CMHA as a strategic opportunity.

To learn more, please view this design presentation by Moody Nolan – with only one caveat: There are 30 total apartments, not just 20.
