In 2013, FIU started Fostering Panther Pride (FPP) to provide more and better opportunities for these students. Through the program, FIU provides tuition waivers and helps secure housing, referrals to FIU and community resources, mentoring, success coaching, and other services that help students navigate challenges and stay on track toward timely graduation. Since it started, FPP has done some truly life-changing work. To date, FPP has supported more than 348 students and graduated more than 69 – nine of whom are currently pursuing graduate degrees. 

Currently, FPP assists 170 students with everyday needs including housing, food vouchers, books and personal care items to name a few. Share this need with your family, your friends and coworkers so they can donate to this worthy cause as well.

Together, we can give these students an opportunity to make their future brighter than their past.
