(Miami, Florida) – FIU’S Presidential Residence, like every year, was home to the 3rd annual First Generation Scholarship Benefit. FIU President, Dr. Mark Rosenberg, opens his doors to the students, staff and faculty of the University to raise funds and awareness for this special empowerment program. In 2006 the Florida Legislature established the First Generation Scholarship Fund to support students who will be the first generation in their families to pursue and attain a college education. This is the only known program in all of the United States to match private contributions 100%.
If you would like to join FIU in supporting these “First Generation” students by making a contribution to this fund, please visit http://firstgen.fiu.edu/. ■
