A bill that would allow Oregon foster children under 25-years-of age to attend state colleges and universities free of charge is headed to the Governor's desk for final approval. Senator Fred Girod says also the Oregon Student Commission is required to prioritize foster children for receiving the Oregon Opportunity Grant.

Those who opposed the legislation said they were concerned that the bill does not set more qualification standards for the students, such as a minimum GPA requirement.
