Who Can Apply:
- Pursuing a college education takes a village, especially for students who are the first in their family to go to college.
- The support of family, friends, and the community can help students as they seek to earn an upper level degree. Scholarships and institutions also help provide that additional support, allowing these students to come into college with a strong financial basis. The Phoenix Opportunity Award will provide this kind of support for students who are first-generation college students and come from low-income backgrounds, helping to ease this transition.
- High school seniors and undergraduate students are eligible to apply if they are first-generation college students who come from low-income backgrounds.
Submission: To apply, write about how being a first-generation college student influences your career choices.
