Two Florida A&M University (FAMU) recent graduates will not have to shoulder the majority of costs associated with their legal education when they become law students in the fall. Jasmine Anthony and Raquel Perry became the first recipients of FAMU All-Stars full-tuition scholarships to attend the College of Law.
The FAMU All-Stars Scholarship is based on an initiative aimed at attracting the most gifted students from the main campus to attend the College of Law in Orlando. The program identifies top academic performing undergraduate students who express an interest in studying law. The academic All-Stars are encouraged to participate in a pre-law program on the main campus that culminates with an All-Stars Tour to Orlando. The College of Law hosted nine of the FAMU All-Stars for the two-day introductory program in February. Perry was a participant on the inaugural tour.
The scholarship recipients were formally presented with the FAMU All-Stars scholarships by College of Law Dean LeRoy Pernell during a ceremony held at Jones Hall on the main campus. Dean Pernell was accompanied by Karemah Manselle, assistant director of Financial Aid; Carlotta Mitchell, Title III program specialist; and Camille Thompson, assistant director, College of Law Admissions.
