    In addition to being citizens or permanent residents of the United States, two-thirds of the students enrolled in the program are low-income individuals who are first-generation college students only. 
    The remaining students are low-income individuals, first-generation college students, or individuals with disabilities. At least one third of the students with disabilities are low-income individuals. All students accepted into the program must have a need for academic support.
