The 6th Annual First-Generation Graduate Student Symposium

Posted by on Tuesday, February 7, 2023 in Announcements, Path to Career Resources .

Join the Boston University Newbury Center, Duke University First-Generation Graduate Student Network, and The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Carolina Grad Student F1RSTS, along with our new Cooperating Sponsor, the Center for First-generation Student Success, for our 6th annual symposium for graduate and professional students on February 24, 2023 via Zoom.

This national symposium is open to any student who identifies as a current first-generation graduate or professional student and is studying any discipline. We define a first-generation graduate/professional student as someone whose parents/guardians/caregivers have not completed an advanced degree, e.g. master’s, doctoral, or professional degree (like a JD or MD).

We are excited to welcome our keynote speaker, Jonathan L. Allen, Co-founder and Director of Development from Leadership Brainery. We will also have opportunities for you to network with other first-generation graduate/professional students at institutions across the country, workshop sessions, and more! All times listed below are EST.

This Symposium is only for current first-generation graduate and professional students.
