Manhattanville First Generation Program | MVILLE FIRST
Manhattanville First Generation Program | MVILLE FIRST is a college success program for first-generation students. Eligible students are those where neither parent/guardian has received a degree from a four-year college or university. The program welcomes new students and their families to the Manhattanville community and supports students’ adjustments to their first year of college life. Participants receive a $2,000 scholarship.
What does first-generation mean?
An MVILLE FIRST Generation student is a student whose parents did not complete a four-year college degree.
Our students work one-on-one with a peer success coach to become familiar with college resources, prepare them for college processes, and provide individualized support.
Attend regular productive meetings with the MVille First Success Peer Coach
As a MVILLE FIRST scholar, you are not required to live on-campus but living on campus allows you to be more engaged with the Manhattanville community! Most first-year students live in Spellman Hall. Learn more about our campus housing
