Your support of this event provides ambitious first-generation college students with a structured career development curriculum, one-on-one mentorship from talented young professionals and access to extensive professional networks. Through your support of the Fellows Program and FirstGenU, students maintain enrollment in school and make the critical connection between college and careers.
At a time when only 21% of low-income, first-generation college students graduate from college, your generosity enables students to achieve outstanding results:
• 82% of Fellows gain hands-on experience in career-trajectory internships or projects
• 96% of Fellow alumni graduate within six years of enrollment
• 78% of Fellow alumni are employed or enrolled in graduate school within six months of graduating
