First Lady’s Scholarship Initiative


All activities scheduled at AAMU have been canceled. Thank you so much for all the hard work in support of the First Lady's Luncheon for 2020. It is always a pleasure working with individuals who are concerned about the education of our students at AAMU. We will look forward to next year to making 2021 a wonderful celebration of the AAMU First Ladies.
