R is for Thursday is an Oklahoma-based, research-led initiative that equips individuals to support college-bound foster youth/alumni and foster alumni attending college. R is for Thursday currently defines an R is for Thursday (R4T) student as any person who spent time in an out-of-home placement in any state or country from ages 13-18 and who is currently enrolled in or has graduated from college, or is college-bound. 

R is for Thursday also honors and is interested in the experiences and needs of other invisible college student populations. An invisible college student population is defined as one that is not easily visually identified, does not generally have a formal voice on campus, and may be motivated to remain anonymous.

The activities of R is for Thursday are accomplished through collaborative partnerships with the foster alumni community, students/graduates, interdisciplinary researchers, community professionals, state and federal entities, and higher education campuses.
