First Generation College Students: Navigating Higher Education

Current Interventions

Throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, there have been increased efforts to aid first-generation college students in their pursuit of tertiary education degrees at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels. These interventions have been implemented by the U.S. Government in the public sphere as well as by numerous private sector entities, including for-profit and non-profit organizations. Here we focus on three nationally-recognized programs: The TRIO Program, The Posse Foundation, and College Possible.
