Duke F1RSTS, formed in Spring 2018, is the network of first-generation graduate students at Duke. Our organization supports Duke’s first-gen grad student population from all departments by providing resources for professional development and opportunities to network and socialize. We host socials, organize career and resume workshops, collaborate with UNC to hold an annual first-gen conference each spring, serve as mentors to Duke undergraduate first-gen students, and more.

If you identify as a first-generation graduate student or ally, we’d love to have you join our community. Explore our website to learn more about Duke F1RSTS, and feel free to reach out to us at dukef1rsts-request@duke.edu  We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
