MICROGRANTS

Who We Are

We are a national community of First-Generation and Low-Income (FGLI) students and supporters in the form of school administrators, faculty, staff, volunteers, donors and corporations fighting to provide resources, advocate policy changes and create safe spaces for first-generation and/or low-income students.

What we do

We promote equal opportunity for first-generation and low-income students by raising awareness of the issues facing FGLI students, building sustainable, supportive student led communities and advocating for policy changes through national and campus-based chapter initiatives. We also foster cross-organizational partnerships to ensure that all students have equal acces to quality education. 

I wanted to thank you and the generous donors who contributed to the microgrant fund for allowing me to go grocery shopping yesterday! I haven't been able to do a real shopping like this since winter break, and it was such a relief!

TESTIMONIALS

I just checked in for my flight and have printed my boarding passes. Everything is running smoothly! I still can't believe this is happening. I will be forever grateful.
