Supporting First Generation Students Through the Madison College Foundation

Half of all Madison College students are among the first in their family to attend college. In 2020, Madison College gained national recognition as a First-Generation Forward institution. We are proud to be recognized for our commitment to first-generation college students and their success. Learn more about resources for first generation students at Madison College.

The ”I’m First” Scholarship supports first-generation students at Madison College.

If you are interested in establishing a scholarship, you can learn more here. We would love to have a conversation about next steps.
