When you invest in the First-Generation Scholarship Fund, you're lending a helping hand and a spark of encouragement to students who may feel alone and intimidated by the experience of a university. The College of Liberal ֱ and Sciences is proud to support the largest and most diverse student population at ֱ State University. Nearly 30 percent of our students are the first in their family to attend a university, and you're showing them their hard work and determination hasn't gone unnoticed.

It was difficult navigating the process of applying to college as undocumented and a first-generation college student. At ASU, I felt I had the support of educators and peers who cared about me. I was able to navigate a complex, changing world and stay grounded while I was becoming the person I am today."

Reyna Montoya, political science and transborder studies alum, 2012

Impact of Donor Support

First-generation students can change the trajectory of their family lineages. Once an initial desire to pursue higher education sparks in a family, later generations are likely to follow down a similar path to obtain a degree.

Education in a family lineage can change and alter the course dramatically for the number of opportunities that people can realize with a college degree.
