First Generation Freshmen Program

The First Generation Freshmen Program provides scholarships, mentoring and other assistance to first-generation students to help them achieve their goals. Approximately 50 students are selected each academic year for this need-based program. First Generation Freshmen Program students receive a scholarship of $1,000 per semester (Fall and Spring terms) for two years to attend Seminole State. The First Generation Freshmen Program also helps students transition to college while providing a sense of community on campus through shared classes. Students are also offered tutoring, mentoring, field trips and assistance with financial planning and budgeting.

To qualify students must:

  1. Be identified as a first-generation college student (neither parent has received a bachelor's 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 Freshmen Program is provided in part by a generous gift from Wayne M. Densch Charities. For more information visit the First Generation Freshmen website or call 407.708.2897.
