FLi Sci (short for first-generation/low-income scientists) is an initiative founded by Gabriel Reyes in June 2020 due to the lack of financial support for students in poverty to access, pursue, and engage in scientific opportunities.

Stories from current and alumni FLi Scientist!
I really enjoyed the program. We learned something new every week and I think that those meetings were really valuable. I also really enjoyed the discussions that we had and the Journal Club in particular was pretty interesting.
I genuinely enjoyed attending this program seeing as it was consecutively the highlight of my week. I especially enjoyed how relatable this program was in terms of relatability. We talked about school, our weeks, topic of interests, which allowed versatility, all the while maintaining the goal-oriented aspect of it.
I learned a lot about a research question I was interested in, and I enjoyed speaking to other students who are interested in STEM but also might deal with the same obstacles as me.
The program, in my opinion, helped me to have conversations I typically wouldn’t have, which made it very enjoyable.
