The University of Florida Fredric G. Levin College of Law has launched a new scholarship program for graduates of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) seeking to enter the legal profession.

The program will award full-tuition scholarships to at least five HBCU graduates enrolling at UF Law every year.

UF Law launches this endowed scholarship with lead gifts totaling more than $1.1 million, including an initial gift from Yolanda Cash Jackson and a $1 million gift from longtime UF Law supporter Hugh Culverhouse. Culverhouse said he was moved to make this gift after the recent passing of civil rights icon Congressman John Lewis.
