Empowering College Freshmen for their first
year of college and beyond!
At Capital One, we recognize the importance of engaging and
developing the community we serve. Our First-Gen Focus program is designed to offer you, as a
freshman first-generation college student, the opportunity for professional and personal development within our 3 core program
pillars: Financial Well-being, Personal Wellness, and Career Readiness & Persistence. Program participants will also have the
opportunity to join our optional mentorship program. The semester-long program is also designed to help you begin to
confidently navigate through your first year of college and to prepare you for life after graduation. The program does not
guarantee future employment at Capital One but should help prepare you for those opportunities.
If you’re ready to take advantage of this amazing opportunity and:
• You identify as a freshman first-generation college student
(neither parent has a four-year degree in any country)
• Will begin college/university in Fall 2021 or January 2022
We look forward to meeting you soon!
Applications are currently open and rolling until a cohort hits capacity.
We plan to add a new cohort every quarter with the next one starting in January 2022!
