*Students currently underrepresented in higher education are those who are first generation AND receive the maximum Pell grant OR students from African American/Black, American Indian/Native American, Hispanic/Latino(a), Native Hawaiian, or Native American Pacific Islander backgrounds. First generation students are those whose parents have not earned a bachelor's degree (an associates or some college is fine).
