In 1987, Dr. Fredrick S. Humphries established the Florida A&M University Graduate Feeder Scholars Program, a direct pipeline for high achieving sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students enrolled at FAMU in any academic discipline, to attend nationally renowned universities to pursue graduate level degrees at no cost to the student. Dr. Humphries’ vision for this program was to ensure that his students had the ability to pursue and earn their degree of choice both at FAMU and beyond. Thirty-Four years later, the “Feeder Program” has been copied by a host of Research 1 Institutions in their desire to expand their diversity in graduate programs. Thus, the Florida A&M University Graduate Feeder Scholars Program has become the “Flagship Pipeline Program” in America. Additionally, since 1987 FAMU has maintained more than 20 partnerships with universities such as Florida State University, the University of Florida, Cornell University, Virginia Tech, and North Carolina A&T University for more than 30 years. These types of institutions have proved their commitment to the Graduate Feeder Scholars Program and to inducted Graduate Feeder Scholars by agreeing to provide full funding for up to five Feeder Scholars in graduate-level programs each year.
