How You Can Help

During these unprecedented times, our students and their families have encountered financial challenges that have threatened their ability to continue their education, making scholarships like the First Generation Scholarship Fund imperative to their success. 

In addition to the current obstacles, being the first in their families to earn their college degree presents challenges that are unique from their peers. The First Generation Scholarship Fund provides our first generation Pell eligible students with the financial support necessary to keep them on their path to graduation. 

Each gift you make is matched 2 to 1 by the state of Florida, increasing the impact you make on USF students and helping turn their dreams into realities!  

Your Impact

Your gift will translate into countless lives enriched and improved through a college education. This means students do not have to take a second job or take additional loans to fund their college education. They can focus on their studies, graduate and become our future teachers, doctors, nurses, engineers and business professionals.

By making a gift to the First Generation Scholarship, every $1 you give will be matched with $2 by the State of Florida's First Generation Matching Grant Challenge, creating triple the impact of scholarship support for our first generation students.
