Application will open December 1st, 2021
Not all first-generation students start college on the same playing field despite our experiences being clumped into one: the first-generation experience. There is a socio-economic divide whether we realize it or not. Some first-generation students attend private high schools, others are born and raised in the USA. The education levels of our parents also vary. All this contributes to some experiencing a smoother transition to college while others take longer to adjust.
This scholarship is designed for first-gens who are systematically marginalized and excluded.
Applications will be accessible through our website beginning December 1st, 2021.
The scholarship will be funded in 3 ways:
1) Swag Sale (shirts, hoodies, etc. with our FirstHub or Peña & Co. logo)
2) Partnering with corporations/non-profit organizations/small & local businesses. These entities will have the option of donating a portion of proceeds from products/services sold or through charitable contributions.
