At Private Tutoring At Home, we believe in fostering educational opportunities for all. The First-Generation College Students Scholarship aims to help break down the barriers that prevent students from embarking on a unique academic journey when they are the first in their families to attend college.

Statistically, 33% of students in higher education are first-generation college students. These students face significant challenges, with many entering the workforce immediately after graduation and only 23% pursuing graduate studies.

Financial stability is a primary goal for these students, which emphasizes the importance of scholarships like the First-Generation College Students Scholarship. This $500 award offers vital support for those taking this significant step in their educational journey, helping to lighten the financial burden they often carry. We aim to empower students blazing the trail in higher education and help them step boldly into their futures.
