Access to higher education is an important measure of progress and an exciting right of passage into young adulthood. It is also something that is financially impossible for thousands of people in the U.S. Programs like the Florida International University’s (FIU) First Generation Scholarship are designed to open the opportunity of higher education to those who are the first in their family to attend college.
First generation scholarships are funded by donors like the Agrawal Family Foundation who has supported the fund since 2013. The importance of education is at the heart of the Foundation’s mission. From early childhood development and medical research projects that the Foundation supports, to the First Generation program, we believe in bettering our world through educating those who live in it.
