2022 Scott Isaacson Scholarship Application

We present this scholarship in honor of Scott Isaacson, the Account Manager at Integrity Staffing who was tragically lost in 2019 due to workplace violence in Phoenix. Scott and his husband Kevin were huge advocates of foster care programs and proudly adopted their son from a foster program in Reno NV. Integrity Staffing has been a great supporter and partner of Comfort Cases for years.

About the Scholarship

In 2015, Comfort Cases began awarding scholarships to support youth in foster care attending college or trade school. For the 2022-2023 school year, gracious supporters of the Comfort Cases Scholarship Program have sponsored funding for two (2) scholarships. Each scholarship will provide tuition assistance to two (2) graduating high school seniors enrolled in an accredited undergraduate program or trade school program in the Fall of 2022. According to the most recent research, less than 3% of youth in foster care graduate from college. The Comfort Cases community is committed to changing that number. Education opens doors to better opportunities, and every child deserves the chance for a bright future.

Award Criteria

The Comfort Cases Scholarship Award Committee will evaluate each submission from applicants based on leadership skills/qualities, academic interests, and expressed need.

Applicant MUST be:

  • A graduating high school senior

  • Currently in foster care

  • A resident of the United States

  • Planning to attend a full or part-time accredited undergraduate program or trade school program in the Fall of 2022.
