Greenspoon Marder Supports The Florida International University “First Generation Scholarship”
Oct 8, 2019
Miami, FL – September 8, 2019 – Greenspoon Marder is proud to support the Florida International University (FIU) “ First Generation Scholarship.” Established in 2006 by the Florida Legislature, the First Generation Scholarship Program provides financial support to qualified undergraduate FIU students who are the first generation in their family to pursue a college degree. At the heart of this innovative scholarship program are the dreams of first generation students who aspire to reap the benefits of an FIU degree.
About 25% of the undergraduate students at FIU are first-generation students. Since the start of the program, more than 13,000 of these students have received scholarships; and more than $29 million has been raised for the program. Starting in the 2018-2019 school year, every $1 donated to the First Generation Scholarship Program has been matched by the State of Florida with $2. Previously, these donations were matched with an equal contribution by the state.
