The 1st Generation Mentorship Program is a community of Stanford Medicine students, faculty, alumni, staff, who are either the first in their family to attend college/graduate/professional school and/or are the first in their families born in the United States.

Our goal is to provide first-generation students with broadened academic and professional networking opportunities and advocacy through continued mentorship.

Our graduate students, especially those who are first generation, will benefit greatly from expert guidance throughout their academic journey.
