First-generation college students often do not have the money or resources to realize their full potential impact, and firstborn first-generation students have it that much more difficult.
The first child in a first-generation migrant household usually experiences a unique childhood filled with many trials and errors, experiments, changes, risks, and a lack of resources within their family. These tribulations can affect students in the educational and social realms of their lives quite detrimentally.
The First-Generation, First Child Scholarship will assist first-generation firstborn students at all levels of education in any field of study to achieve their academic ambitions.
To apply, please write about how your experience as the firstborn first-generation child has shaped you into who you are today.
How has your experience as a first-generation, firstborn child been growing up? What makes this specific combination unique to you and how has it affected you in school, mentally, physically, all aspects of life?
The application deadline is Apr 4, 2021. Winners will be announced on May 1, 2021.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 1, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
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.
