First Gen Mentorship Program

The First Gen Mentorship Program was created to support UCSF First Gen students and connect them to faculty, staff, and alumni. Mentors can bring in a fresh perspective, normalize our struggles, help us navigate through our academic and professional endeavors, ask you the hard questions, and serve as a source of inspiration and support.
