The purpose of this thesis was to write a grant proposal to fund advocacy services through the All Ways Up (AWU) Foundation, which partners with non-profits that service low-income, first-generation college students. The advocacy services, named TAP (The Advocacy Project) are provided to the students within 35 organizations in partnership with the AWU Foundation. The goal is to increase college retention rates and advocacy skills among first-generation students. The literature explored first-generation status and some of the challenges faced by students who are the first in their families to attend college. Submission and/or funding of this project was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
