Help Where it's Needed Most
How the First Generation Fund Works
FMU began a new, needs-based scholarship program four years ago called the Heart of the Pee Dee. Heart of the Pee Dee students are identified by counselors and teachers at their respective high schools as promising students who might not attend college due to financial constraints. The scholarship helps fund the difference between grants and other scholarships the student may qualify for, and their FMU tuition. The same mechanics will be used to deliver new funding to students from the First Generation Fund, but on a broader scope, both financially and geographically.
