First Generation Harvard Alumni Shared Interest Group

Join the growing community of Harvard alumni interested in supporting students who are the first in their family to attend college. The First Generation Harvard Alumni (FGHA) SIG offers opportunities to mentor first gen students and network with first gen alums. Founded in 2012, FGHA has more than 300 members from across Harvard's degree-granting institutions. Each year, over 100 FGHA commit to mentoring incoming first generation students to help them navigate Harvard successfully.


Expect to hear from us soon about upcoming events and networking opportunities in the Philadelphia area!
