Partners in supporting & encouraging first-gen students

College Partners

Strive for College partners with colleges and universities from across the country that place a high value on admitting and supporting first-gen college students. College Partners contribute to the I’m First! Stories campaign, nominate students to write for the I’m First! blog, are featured in the I’m First! Guide to College, and participate in Strive’s online college mentoring platform, UStrive.
