Idaho First-Generation Experience Summit 

IATP was delighted to host the inaugural Idaho First-Generation Experience Summit on November 15th, 2022. The purpose of the event was to bring Idaho leaders together from government, institutions of higher education, and community partners to discuss the challenges first-generation students face and what can be done to address them. Attendees sat at round tables so people from around the state of Idaho could discuss solutions centered on presentations about financial struggles, successful institutional collaboration, and the Affordable Connectivity Program. The planning committee made sure there was a TRIO student at every table so their voice could be heard when education leaders were discussing solutions and all ideas were recorded by note takers for future conversations. Overall, the event was very successful and all participants were interested in continuing the conversation so that Idaho can better serve those who are first-generation.  


IATP Mission

The mission of the Idaho Association of TRIO Professionals is to be a catalyst in the state of Idaho for progressive initiatives that promote educational equity, access, and opportunity for traditionally marginalized student populations.

University of Idaho | Upward Bound Math-Science When I moved to the mainland from Guam, one word that I knew, but perhaps didn’t truly understand, was the word “Opportunity.” However, I found that opportunity remained ambiguous despite finding myself in a location where possibility should have been abundant everywhere. It was not until ninth grade

Boise State University | Teacher Preparation Program As a first generation college student, I showed up at the threshold of the TRIO Teacher Prep SSS Program as an overwhelmed and anxious freshman with four years of the unknown hanging over my head. Over the past three years, this program has helped me in countless ways.
