First Generation Envisioning Network (FGEN) Program

The First Generation Envisioning Network (FGEN) program is a program for first-generation students to explore their personal and career-related goals with the support of their peers, Ohio State staff, and employers.


The program is fully virtual and runs from the week of June 6th through the week of July 25th. Students meet weekly over Zoom for about 3 hours total per week. During this time, students will participate in career development sessions, including as strategic goal setting, practice interviews, resume reviews and financial wellness sessions. The program pays up to $150 at the completion of the 8-week program.


Applications are now open and First-Generation college students can apply by April 30. Spots are limited, so please sign up as soon as possible! All currently-enrolled undergraduate first-generation students of any major or rank are invited to join us.
