What is Aggie First Scholars?

Aggie First Scholars is a student success program dedicated to the persistence of first-generation college students (FGS) at USU; meaning the parents of our scholars did not attend college or earn a four-year U.S. degree.

First-generation college students (FGS) are often extremely resilient, highly independent, ambitious, and eager to learn. Our purpose is to provide a framework for these students to gain access to unfamiliar, supportive resources and master skills that let them take the wheel on their education and KNOW THE POTENTIAL WITHIN.
