First-generation college students face many social and financial challenges when pursuing higher education.
Due to the high costs of college and the fact that many first-generation students come from lower-income families, it can be difficult for first-generation students to pursue their education goals.
This scholarship seeks to support a graduating high school senior who will be the first in their family to attend a four-year university.
Any high school senior who is involved in sports or extracurricular activities, has a 3.0 GPA or higher, is helping to fund their own education, and will be the first in their immediate family to attend college may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, please tell us about a challenge or setback you’ve experienced and how you overcame or are working to overcome that challenge.

We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
