Being First Gen means to me that I am creating a path for myself to succeed and finding new opportunities on my own with Stevens here to support me every step of the way.
At Stevens, a first-generation college student is someone whose parent(s) or legal guardian(s) have not graduated from a four-year college or university. Students who self-identify as limited income may receive a Pell Grant or funding through New Jersey’s EOF program, but any student interested in these resources is welcome to participate in the FLI Network.
Stevens is committed to providing a supportive campus environment for first-generation and/or limited income (FLI) students’ education beyond academics through involvement in educational social activities that are engaging and informative. A collaboration between multiple offices and campus leaders at Stevens, the FLI Network is the programatic hub for educational events and opportunities for first-generation and/or limited income students. All FLI students at Stevens are encouraged to participate in the following opportunities provided and share their pride to be FLI Ducks!
