With college costs climbing, today’s students are having to go above and beyond just to finish their degrees. 

First-generation college students, in particular, face challenges when it comes to completing their degrees. First-generation students often have limited financial resources when compared to continuing-generation students. Furthermore, with little to no familial connections in academia, first-generation students are placed at a disadvantage when pursuing their degrees.

This scholarship aims to support students pursuing higher education so they have the necessary resources to stay in school. 

Any first-generation undergraduate student who has at least a 2.8 GPA may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us how will you use your unique talents and skills to build a more empathetic and understanding global community.
