Who is eligible for Cycles for Success?

"Traditionally underrepresented students" refers to students who typically do not go to college and have one or more of the following characteristics:

  1. First generation, meaning neither one of the student's parents received a Bachelor's degree (4-year degree)
  2. Low-income family based on federal guidelines
  3. 75% of their graduating class
  4. Member of an ethnic or racial minority (African Americans/ Black, American Indian, Asian, Hispanic, and multiracial)

In specific instances, other groups of students may be considered underrepresented. For example, in a traditionally female discipline like nursing, males may be considered “underrepresented.”
