First-generation college students frequently face unique hurdles such as financial constraints, academic unpreparedness, and difficulties in navigating college life. 

Overcoming these challenges not only fuels their personal growth and success but also breaks intergenerational cycles of educational disadvantage, thereby driving societal progress. In recognition of the challenges faced by first-generation students, this scholarship aims to promote educational equity and empower these students to reach their full potential, thereby enriching our academic communities. 

This scholarship aims to support students who are forging new paths for their families by obtaining college degrees.

Any first-generation college student who is pursuing a four-year undergraduate degree may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us what being a first-generation student means to you and what your long-term goals for the future are.
