First-Generation college students often do not have the money or resources to realize their full potential impact. 

A first-generation college student’s annual household income, on average, is about $50,000 less than that of continuing generation students.

Without adequate funds to attend college, first-generation students are left at a severe disadvantage, often continuing on their family path of not going to college.

Every aspiring student should have the opportunity to receive the education they seek no matter their financial situation or status.

Bold.org’s First Generation College Student Scholarship exists to support and encourage those bold first-generation college students who want to change the world and may not have the resources to reach their full potential.

Bold.org will be awarding a scholarship each day in November to celebrate National Scholarship Month. Follow along on Bold.org's Instagram and TikTok for daily announcements of scholarships and winners!
