First Generation Scholarship

Nearly 8,830 FIU students have received a First Generation Scholarship since 2006. The need, however, is far greater than available resources — less than one in five eligible students receives one. As a result, many talented students with limited resources are forced to attend only part-time or to postpone their education altogether.

First Generation Scholarships empower students to create opportunities that lead to a better life. Philanthropic investments in the program are also matched 100 percent by the state of Florida, doubling the impact of your gift.

I’m thankful for the First Generation Scholarship and am blessed to have found an institution like FIU that has helped me accomplish my dream to get a degree and have a better job and opportunities in life. FIU provides the tools, and I would not have access to them if it weren’t for the scholarship supporters’ generosity and commitment.Clara Ardon ’13, Accounting
