Southern University aims to send more kids to college with new scholarship

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Some community college students will have a chance to further their education thanks to a new scholarship from Southern University.

The Pathway Scholarship will guarantee admission to Southern, along with $1,500 annually to students who complete their associates degree, but students have to be members of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society to receive this award.

The scholarships will be given out on a first come, first served basis.
