First Generation Scholars

End of year picnic in Central Park

First Generation Scholars is a program for high school juniors and seniors who will be the first generation in their families to attend college or who come from underserved communities.

We provide a one-on-one mentoring program to the students. Students are paired with Mount Sinai graduate and medical students. The aim is to get students excited about college and give them advice on what to expect. There will also be several activities throughout the year to foster the mentor-mentee relationship and information sessions aimed at college preparation.
