First Generation Program

The First Generation Program (FGP) is committed to building a sense of community among first generation MIT students, faculty, alumni, and staff, and raising awareness of their unique experiences.

Through this network, we enhance the academic success, professional growth, and personal development of first generation students at MIT. 

Check us out on Instagram! MIT FGP. You can  learn more about FGP in the recent MIT News story about our programming.

What we offer:

  • Networking with other first generation students, faculty, and alumni
  • Study breaks, including a board game night and an open mic night!
  • Peer mentor program
  • Professional development opportunities
  • Workshops on diving deeper into the identity

We hope you explore this site to learn more about what it’s like to be first generation at MIT.
