First Scholars Program

Every gift counts.

The First Scholars Program and other first-generation initiatives at Washington State University address the unique challenges of students who are among the first in their families to attend college. Our innovative programming is designed with the whole person in mind. Not only do we give our students the tools and resources to level the playing field as first-generation students, we also provide an opportunity to develop the tangible skills that help them envision and empower their lives.

Donors guarantee the continued success of first-generation students and increase the number of deserving first-generation students who benefit from these program services. Please consider giving a monetary donation for any of our first-generation initiatives through the Campaign for Washington State University drive. Click below to access the secure site today!

All donations are managed through the WSU Foundation and are tax-deductible. The WSU Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that is structurally separate from Washington State University and exists solely for WSU’s benefit, serving as the preferred channel for private gifts to all areas of the University. The WSU Foundation’s taxpayer identification number is 91-1075542.
