First Generation Program

The First Generation Program is dedicated to supporting incoming first-time-in-college, first-generation students at Seminole State College of Florida. The First Generation Program provides academic advising, financial aid assistance, student programming and activities, peer mentoring, and other resources to help first-generation students achieve their goals. 

Approximately 75 students are selected each academic year for the Wayne M. Densch First Generation Scholarship Program. This need-based program provides students with scholarship of $750 per semester (Fall and Spring terms) for two years to attend Seminole State. 

To qualify for the Scholarship Program, students must:

  1. Be identified as a first-generation college student (neither parent has received a bachelor's degree) seeking an AA degree;
  2. Be identified as a first-time-in-college student (have not previously attended college);
  3. Demonstrate financial need (as determined by the FAFSA);
  4. Agree to participate in cohort activities per semester.

The First Generation Scholarship Program is provided in part by a generous gift from Wayne M. Densch Charities. For more information, visit the First Generation Program website or call 407.708.2897.
