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. 

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

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.
