At UofM first-generation is any student who has a parent or guardian who has not completed a 4-year degree. This means a parent or guardian could have completed a technical degree, international degree, or associates and the student would still be first-generation. It also does not matter if the student has a sibling who has completed a 4-year degree already.
Our First Scholars generally hold higher GPA’s than many other first-generation students and can graduate within a 4-year span. I work closely with these students to ensure their success throughout their 4 years and prepare them for post-graduation life. Each fall semester we accept 20 new scholars into our scholarship program. Please let me know if you have any questions. The deadline for this scholarship is February 1, 2023 and students who are already admitted to the UofM can apply here.
