First Scholars Program

WSU First Scholars

Participants in the First Scholars Program come from diverse backgrounds. A common link among most first-generation students is that they don't always have access to the same level and availability of support and information as students whose parents have a 4-year college degree. First Scholars’ holistic program is designed to level the playing field in terms of knowledge, access to resources, and campus engagement. Our Scholars are provided college success strategies, campus involvement opportunities, a living-learning community experience, and a comprehensive support network of mentors and First Scholars staff to help them succeed during college and beyond!
