First Generation Veterans Program
Texas A&M’s recognition as a military-friendly university attracts many student veterans, and as a result, numerous campus departments provide programs and support to ensure Aggie student veteran success. One of these is the First Generation Veterans learning community, a yearlong comprehensive program composed of first generation undergraduate veterans, faculty, and staff from across the university.
Created and led by the Texas A&M in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, the First GenVets program is uniquely designed to:
- Increase knowledge and associated skills of First Generation Veterans in the attributes necessary to be a successful college student.
- Increase First Generation Veterans’ support networks with campus resources, other Veterans, faculty, and staff.
This program provides stipends to student veterans in the program as well as supports monthly programmatic expenses.
