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.
- 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
