The Participation Agreement is a partnership or memorandum of understanding between Florida A&M University and the Feeder Institutions. It stipulates the basic benefits each Institution will provide to qualified FAMU scholars upon application and acceptance into a graduate program of study. Some participation agreements include the following: admission application fee waivers, campus visitation opportunities at no charge to students, and summer research internships.
The agreements are initially instituted to cover a five-year period. However, they are monitored annually to ensure active participation in the program. Feeder Institutions are invited to the campus of Florida A&M University annually for the purpose of providing institutional information and recruitment.
