Welcome to the First Generation Scholars Network!
If you will be the first in your family to earn a college degree, join our network to get support
and resources from ISAC, your peers at your college, and colleges
across the state! If you are heading to your first year of college this fall, we’ve got
events and programs that can give you tools, resources, mentoring, and a great
network of connections to make your transition and first year of college a whole
lot easier—and successful.
Connect with a First Generation Scholars Network Mentor
Our team of recent college graduates is your resource for all your
questions and concerns about transitioning to college. We’ve been where you
are, had a lot of the same questions, fears, and experiences you might be having.
We are here to listen, answer questions, offer suggestions, connect you with the
places on your campus that can assist you, and connect you with a network of
peers like you.

Join us for a “Check-in” Event
Our First Generation Scholars Network Mentors will be holding virtual and in-person “Check-in” events throughout the year where first generation students
who are transitioning to college can take advantage of meeting with our mentors. ISAC mentors can answer your questions and provide other supports
you might need as you get ready for your first semester.
