TALLAHASSEE - Florida A&M University is hoping to help raise the quality of applicants by working with students in the several Leon County high schools.
The Tallahassee Democrat reports that up to two dozen high school students are participating in the FAMU's Stellar Student Program. School officials hope to expand to other parts of Florida.
Though officials hope that participants will attend FAMU, the program doesn't limit them to the school.
Students must have a 3.0 GPA and a solid attendance record. Science, technology, engineering and math courses are emphasized, but the program is not limited to those areas.
