2:00 to 3:00 p.m. ET

Hosting a celebration event specifically for first-generation college students sends a powerful message of recognition and support. It acknowledges their achievements and the challenges they may have overcome to pursue higher education. Such an event can boost their self-esteem, motivation, and sense of belonging, reinforcing their commitment to academic success. First-Generation College Celebration Day is an annual opportunity to raise awareness of and celebrate the first-generation college student identity. By advancing an asset-based, national narrative of these students’ experiences and outcomes, TRIO can maximize this day to create networks and recognition on their campuses, and in their communities. Learn how to develop a competitive application for funding that will increase your chances of receiving the $1,000 grant to celebrate your scholars.
