First-Generation, Limited-Income Students

The path to college isn’t the same for everyone, and our goal at Hopkins is to ensure all students feel supported, empowered, and excited to make contributions to our community. If you’re the first student in your family to attend college, please know there is a network of people, offices, and programs dedicated to making sure your transition to Hopkins is successful and you’re well prepared to meet your full potential throughout your time here.

First-generation college students are typically identified as students whose parents, guardians or other custodial family members have not completed a four-year degree. A number of first-generation students also receive federal Pell grant assistance as their families may have limited financial resources. These group of students are known as FLI within the Hopkins community.

Destiny StatentDon’t think too much about what other people are doing and just focus on what needs to happen for you to be happy in all facets. You owe it to yourself to figure out what works for you to function properly. – Destiny Staten ’20
