First Generation Low Income Student Support

Our team works to advocate for, promote a sense of belonging within, and build community across the student populations of first-generation, low-income, and military-affiliated/veteran students at the University of Virginia. Our work makes manifest the mission and values of ODOS, the division of Student Affairs and the University of Virginia.

Some of the ways our office accomplishes this are as follows:

  • One-on one meetings with students
  • Emotional and academic support for students having difficulty during their time at UVA
  • E-newsletters with targeted information pertinent to this community
  • Comprehensive Financial Literacy Programs on topics such as: budgeting, completing the FAFSA, and understanding your financial aid awards
  • Panels on topics such as housing, study abroad, undergraduate research and other important academic and co-curricular opportunities
  • Collaboration with student organizations that are dedicated to the FGLI and military-affiliated community
