" The support of others has propelled me through formative experiences and to incredible opportunities throughout my life. It is an honor and privilege to say I can now offer help to others like it was once offered to me—that’s what the mentorship cohort program for FLI students at Colby is all about—but my time as a learner and mentee will never be over. I look forward to the Millennium Fellowship as a new source of mentorship and learning for me. I am excited to join a community of amazing young leaders from around the world and continue developing myself as a leader and source of support for those around me! "
Millennium Fellowship Project: FLI@Colby Program
The FLI@Colby Program has worked diligently to cultivate a campus-wide network of support, minimize barriers, and foster community for first-generation/low-income students through experiences, staff support, and faculty guidance.
FLI@Colby is dedicated to supporting first-gen/low-income students and their families throughout their Colby careers. The program provides the foundation and continued building blocks for success throughout students’ four years at Colby. With dedicated programming for first-year students, beneficial workshops for FLI students across all four class years, and continued events for the full FLI community, the Program takes a holistic approach to FLI student support.
About the Millennium Fellow
Educational equity has been a passion of Misael Beltran-Guzman since high school, when attending an elite private school on scholarship highlighted the disparities between the schooling available to different communities. The son of Mexican immigrants, Misael studies at Colby College as a double-major in both Latin American Studies and Education. Since 2019, he has dedicated himself to the First-generation/Low Income (FLI) Program, which has expanded exponentially since his start as Program Fellow. Now entering his third year in the position, he continues to dream big and work hard in creating structures of community and support for FLI students at Colby.
