First-Gen Fellows Program--Fellow Nomination Form
Do you know a first-generation college student attending SLCC that would benefit from a fellowship mentoring program? The SLCC First-Gen Fellows program is a mentoring opportunity to enhance leadership and professional skills, as well as build meaningful, beneficial and lasting relationships between SLCC first-generation students and dedicated SLCC faculty and staff mentors. The program will work to identify, support and advance SLCC first-generation college students—those who come from families where neither of their parents did not complete a four-year/bachelor’s college degree. Through faculty and staff mentorship and engagement, the program will provide opportunities for the academic and personal success of all our first-gen students on campus.
The First-Gen Fellows Program is currently a semester commitment geared toward SLCC undergraduate students interested in careers related to but not limited to, public service, student affairs, academic affairs, social justice, policy and advocacy, community leadership or discipline-specific to a Fellows matched faculty or staff mentor.
Use this form to nominate a first-gen student as a Fellow for this program.
Fill out this form to nominate a phenomenal first-generation college student that you know at Salt Lake Community College. Undocumented students (with and without DACA) are eligible to be a part of this program.
Selected students will be placed in our inaugural First-Generation Fellows cohort program and matched with a committed SLCC Faculty and/or Staff member that will act as the Fellows mentor throughout this mentoring fellowship program.
A First Gen Student is:
• A student whose parent(s) or guardian(s) have not earned a bachelor’s degree.
• A student whose parent(s) or guardian(s) have attended but not completed any college.
At SLCC 56% of students are first-generation.
“The term ‘first-generation’ implies the possibility that a student may lack the critical cultural capital necessary for college success because their parents did not attend college. While first-generation students are often quite academically skilled and contribute in many ways to a campus community, navigating the tangled web of college policies, procedures, jargon, and expectations can be a challenge.”
