Doubled Your Gift

First-generation students — those who are the first in their families to attend college — face a variety of challenges that others don't. At the same time, much more is riding on their success, since they have the power to positively influence others in their families who can, in turn, serve as role models, creating a powerful ripple effect.

For every dollar you give to help fund scholarships for first-generation students the state of Florida will give another through its First Generation Matching Grant Program, effectively doubling the positive impact you can create.
