Lincoln University, the historically Black educational institution in Pennsylvania, has signed an agreement with Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. Under the agreement, students at Lincoln University who meet certain criteria will be guaranteed admission to the Drake School of Law and the School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
In addition to admission, the Lincoln students will be guaranteed partial or full scholarships for three years at the law school and four years at the School of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Under the program, students from Lincoln University will receive a minimum of a 50 percent scholarship to the law school that can be renewed for the second and third year of law school. Students admitted to the School of Pharmacy and Health Science will receive at least $10,000 in scholarship funds that are renewable for the ensuing three years.
Students with superior qualifications to the minimal criteria for admission to both professional schools under the partnership agreement, will be eligible for full-tuition scholarships.
