About

William & Mary has the highest median income and one of the lowest proportions of Pell Grant students of all public colleges in the country (Chetty, Friedman, Saez, Turner, & Yagan, 2017; NCES, 2019). As seen with the most recent US News & World Report Rankings (2020), "social mobility" is not currently our strength as an institution.

We want to change this. FGLI (first-gen/low-income) Students of William & Mary will provide support, programming, and community to this special group of students. While we don't have the ability to enroll more first-generation/low-income college students, this group *does* have the ability to provide much needed support to these students at William & Mary.

This year will be spent organizing and scaling support efforts within the small but vibrant FGLI community and raising awareness across campus that this student population exists.

Agency: William & Mary (BOV)

Fund: FGLI (first-gen/low-income) Students of William & Mary

Purpose: To provide support initiatives for first generation, low-income (FGLI) students at William & Mary, including marketing and events.

Fund Administrator: Dean, Arts & Sciences

Goal Not Met: scale down programming

Goal Exceeded: increase programming
