First-Generation Student Association


The First-Generation Student Association (FGSA) at New York University’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service is a student organization dedicated to enriching the Wagner experience of students who are first in their families to attend graduate school in the United States.  FGSA achieves this through connecting first-gen students and administration to partner in opportunities to improve academic and professional achievement of first-gen.


Membership is open to all the NYU and Wagner community and our events are open to those in the general public interested in issues relating to supporting first-gen students. We are always eager to strengthen our relationships with other organizations and individuals that identify with our mission.
