dc.description.abstract The purpose of this qualitative research was to identify barriers that first generation Latinas face when pursuing a graduate degree. This population of students is emerging and in order for campuses to fully understand their needs, these students will need to share their experiences. The narratives of five Latina women recently awarded masters recipients are shared in order to gain insight into their decision to attend graduate school, what kept them going, and what obstacles they faced. The data collected in this study provides campus administrators with a glimpse into who their student population is. The study uncovered the following themes: “family” “identity” “mentorship” “career goals” “finances” “campus resources” and “the next generation.” en_US
