Provide a Transformational Experience with First Gen Abroad
Study abroad is one of the most impactful and life-changing experiences a student can have in college.
It not only gives students an opportunity to explore a new country and new cultures – it also lets them work with diverse populations, develop cultural competency skills, and learn power skills such as confidence, flexibility, and self-efficacy.
There are academic and professional benefits to studying abroad, too. Students who study abroad earn higher GPAs and have higher degree completion rates than students who do not. By the time they graduate, these remarkable students are highly sought-after applicants in the global job market.
First-Generation Abroad, an individualized, supportive program designed exclusively for first gen students, lets these students participate in study abroad opportunities they wouldn’t typically pursue due to other obligations or financial constraints. Your donation makes this transformative global learning possible for our exceptional first-gen students!
