Scholarship Program Between Alabama A&M and Pinnacle Schools

August 12, 2015

Alabama A&M University’s incoming freshman class will include the first recipients of a new scholarship program established to meet the needs of students that traditionally lack the resources to further their education.

The scholarship program was developed through a partnership between The Pinnacle Schools and Alabama A&M University (AAMU).

Recipients of the AAMU scholarships were selected from The Pinnacle Schools 2014-2015 graduating class by a committee of both entities, including teachers and counselors. The goal of the program is to provide at-risk students an opportunity to attend college, improve freshman retention and provide comprehensive support services to meet the needs of these at-risk students. 

The signing ceremony will take place on August 12, 2015 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. at AAMU-Agricultural Research Center Auditorium. The public is invited to attend.

The Pinnacle Schools provide academic and therapeutic programs in Huntsville for middle and high schools students that struggle in traditional classroom settings primarily due to learning differences, behavior and/or emotional challenges. 

Alabama A&M University was established in 1890 as a land-grant institution in Huntsville.  AAMU balances the personal attention of a small traditional land-grant college with the academic vitality and broad opportunities of a research university.  AAMU has a diverse faculty and student body, state-of-the-art facilities, and top-notch resources, programs and services.
