First in the Family - About the Program Banner

Being the first in your family to pursue post-secondary education (a first-generation student) is something to be proud of!  First generation students are building their own legacy, and the First in the Family program at U of T is here to support them in their endeavours.

Join an inclusive academic community and gain access to resources and support through the First in the Family Mentorship Program.


What Does "First Generation" Mean?

- If your parents or guardian(s) did not complete post-secondary   
  education, you are a first-generation student 
- If your parents attended post-secondary education outside of
  Canada, you are still eligible for this program
- If your sibling(s) attended post-secondary institutions, but your
  parents or guardian(s) did not, you are still considered first
