First Gen, Next Gen
The First Gen, Next Gen scholarship fund was established in 2016 through student advocacy and a consortium of donors in order to provide scholarships and financial assistance for first-generation college students, including students whose immigration status might otherwise hinder them from accessing higher education. Awards may be based on merit as well as financial need. Students must have a minimum cumulative 2.75 GPA for the semester prior (ex.: for the spring 2019 award, students will need a cumulative 2.75 GPA at the close of the Fall 2018 semester.). Both in-state and out-of-state students may qualify, as may both documented and undocumented immigrant students, regardless of their Visa, DACA, and TPS status.
