Support the First Generation Gift Fund

The First Generation Gift Fund provides scholarship funds and resources for students who are the first in their family to go to college. The Office of First Generation Initiatives utilizes these donations to fill in financial gaps for students, support education abroad opportunities and focus on students financial needs.

One student that has been impacted by this program is Andrea. Growing up in southeastern Kentucky, UK was always her dream school but was never sure she could afford to come here. Because of a $5,000 scholarship she received combined with her federal Pell grant, UK became a reality. Last year, when her dad passed away after a battle with cancer, the resources and support of the Office of First Generation Initiatives allowed her to stay enrolled and help her complete that semester on the Dean's list.
