Eligibility, Academics | Earlham College Skip to Content

The LIFT Program works with first-generation students residing in the USA and assumed to be citizens based on demographic data supplied in the Earlham admissions process. Definitions of "first-generation" vary. Like many schools, Earlham has adopted the Federal Government Department of Education TRiO Program definition of first-generation to ascertain LIFT eligibility.

  1. An individual both of whose parents did not complete a baccalaureate degree; or
  2. In the case of any individual who regularly resided with and received support from only one parent, an individual whose only such parent did not complete a baccalaureate degree.

International students are not eligible for LIFT at the moment; they instead work with an International Student Adviser and participate in support initiatives managed by the Center for Global Education.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
