Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $32,000)

This proposal seeks to study the contextual and structural factors that influence criminal outcomes among foster children transitioning into adulthood. The applicant proposes two papers to meet their dissertation requirements. The first paper will examine the impact of California’s new extended foster case policy on youth outcomes using 2006-2016 California administrative data on 16 and 17 year olds (n = 135,000) in foster care. Paper 2 will build on this concept by studying the role of childhood social bonds in mitigating criminal behavior. It will identify distinct subgroups and trajectories for foster care youth based on these social bonds. This paper will use existing longitudinal survey data of California foster youth (n = 616).CA/NCF
