The First-in-Family Scholarship Fund gives first-generation college students the opportunity to advance their education at Southwestern Adventist University where faith grows and service abounds. Since 2011, the proceeds from the Annual Homecoming Golf Classic have provided over $132,000 in funding. Eighty-six students have received this scholarship over the past ten years, making an incredible difference in the lives of these young scholars.

Coming from a low-income household and being the first in my family to go to college made me feel like all odds were against me. Thanks to the support I received from the First-in-Family Scholarship Fund, the dreams of my parents, myself, and future generations will be able to come true. I am forever grateful for the opportunity I was given to receive a Christ-centered higher education. Having graduated with degree in kinesiology this past May, I'm currently pursuing my calling to become a physical therapist. My goal is to one day operate clinics that will aid those who need treatment and can't afford it. Throughout my life, I have seen God at work helping my family, which is why I want to give back in return. The impact that generous donors have made on my life has inspired me to one day assist other students just like me.
