Thank you for your interest in supporting first-generation students at DePaul! Our campaign will launch on Monday, November 8 - National First-Generation College Celebration Day!

National First-Generation College Celebration Day

Support first-gen students today!

Celebrate DePaul's First-Generation Students!

Approximately one-third of DePaul University students identify as the first person in their family to attend college. We know how critical it is to support these first-generation students, who are blazing new trails for themselves and their families, in their academic journeys. From scholarships to academic support, career services and social engagement, we strive to ensure our first-gen students have exactly what they need to succeed. Your gift today will help us provide the programs and resources they need to achieve their educational dreams.

In honor of National First-Generation College Celebration Day, make a gift in support of first-gen DePaul students today!
