Your generosity goes a long way when you give to a first-generation college student.
When you help someone achieve a degree, you change economic outcomes for an entire family— outcomes that improve life for all of us.
College graduates have lower rates of unemployment. They earn more money over their lifetime. They are more likely to have benefits like health insurance, and are more likely to vote and live a healthy lifestyle. Those benefits extend beyond generations.
Arizona State University is ahead of the curve when it comes to supporting first-generation students, but with your help, it can do more.
One-third of the freshmen at ASU are first generation, and they are twice as likely to leave school before their sophomore year.
Your generosity to ASU’s First- Generation Scholarship Endowment will provide financial, academic and social support to first-generation students. When you give, you ease their financial pressure. You surround them with support services, enabling them to focus on academics and participate in activities that lead to success.
