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.
