Are you a FITF Mentee? Then you were emailed a link to a FITF end-of-year survey to be completed by May 19, 11:59pm. The earlier you complete and submit the survey, the more prize draws you will be entered into. 14 prizes, each consisting of a U of T Bookstore gift card in the amount of $10.00, will be given out at this fun social event. Come and participate in a variety of activities and board games, and check out a slide show of photos taken at many of the events we had all year — maybe you’re in some of them! And if you haven’t already picked it up, we’ll give you your letter of recognition of your participation in FITF that day, specifically addressed to you and signed by President Meric Gertler.
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
