First-generation Completion Initiative

Care for Students

Give Now



First-generation students face greater challenges to completing higher education than students who have at least one parent with a bachelor’s degree. The First-generation Completion Initiative removes barriers and provides necessary resources.


  • $75,000 minimum annual scholarship funding


The top reason first-generation students drop out is financial difficulties. Support to this initiative directly helps students complete their degrees through scholarships and program support.
