First-generation college students face many social and financial challenges when pursuing higher education. 

Due to the high costs of college and the fact that many first-generation students come from lower-income families, it can be difficult for first-generation students to pursue their education goals. 

This scholarship seeks to support a graduating high school senior who will be the first in their family to attend a four-year university.

Any high school senior who is involved in sports or extracurricular activities, has a 3.0 GPA or higher, is helping to fund their own education, and will be the first in their immediate family to attend college may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, please tell us about a challenge or setback you’ve experienced and how you overcame or are working to overcome that challenge.


Education Level: Must be a high school senior

GPA: Must have a 3.0 GPA or higher

Future: Must be planning to attend a four-year university as a first-generation student

Activities: Must be involved in sports or extracurriculars
