First Generation College Students Succeed At Georgetown University

Georgetown University's Scholarship Program (GSP) provides low income and/or first generation college students with the emotional and financial support they need to succeed. Emily and Adrian are two junior standouts in the program. Their stories will inspire you!


The Georgetown Scholarship Program was founded in 2004 and it ensures that all scholarship students have the resources and support networks they need to succeed at Georgetown.

GSP is a community and family of students, alumni, volunteers, and mentors. "We aim to be a home away from home. We are truly invested," explains Program Director of GSP, Missy Foy.



With a 96.4% graduation rate for first generation students, the Georgetown Scholarship Program is way ahead of the 32% national average. "A lot of students would think of GSP as their second family, but I think of it as my first family," says Emily who carries a 3.9 GPA.

"GSP has an atmosphere where the love is endless and everyone wants to see you succeed," says Adrian.
