3. First Gen Grads

Announcing a NEW UC Davis graduate student group: First-Gen Grads!
First-Gen Grads (FGG) is a BRAND NEW student group designed to provide support for first-generation graduate students at UC Davis. If you (a) are the first person in your family to pursue a graduate degree, or (b) do not have access to family-based knowledge of graduate school, this group is for you!
Sign up for our mailing list to receive news and updates on the FGG schedule for 2017-2018. Included in our events are:
– Weekly work/study/support spaces
– Monthly peer mentoring events, and
– Quarterly workshops on topics of interest to first-gen grads

We also hope to provide a mentorship matching program with faculty and staff who were first-gen themselves or are interest in supporting first-gen students.

For questions, comments, or to apply for a position on the FGG executive board, please contact Sarah Messbauer, FGG founder, at
