The FLi Society 


The FLi Society is a UWA student group for first-generation students and students from low-income backgrounds.

The purpose of the FLi Society is to offer additional support to first generation and/or low income students at UWA to help them become accustomed to the new lifestyles, environments, and academic responsibilities one encounters while attending college. They also focus on raising awareness around campus of the potential of UWA's first-generation population.


Some initiatives the FLi Society focuses on are:

  • Fundraising to support scholarships for first-generation students at UWA
  • Establishing a textbook lending library for students
  • Food drives to help stock the UWA student food bank
