First Generation Scholars Program

The First Generations Scholars Progam is a holistic program that includes student development, academic advising, support, leadership and community engagement opportunities for eligible grant recipients. CMA serves over 730 students in all class standings in this program and focuses on individualized support, guidance, and advocacy.  We work with each student in exploring their personal pathways for success and in maximizing their experience through a host of important opportunities, resources, and connections.  Students are welcomed into the program upon confirmation to CU and given assistance through to graduation. Students must fulfill program requirements to maintain eligibility. Requirements are designed to foster individual academic excellence, as well as enhance social development through active participation in a variety of skills and community building opportunities.  Students not awarded the FGP grant can still access and utilize CMA resources and are very welcome in any of the programs, services, and offerings.  For more information on the Financial Aid requirements and eligibility parameters, please visit:
