The program launched in 2020 with six women from Southern University, Xavier University (LA), and UL-Monroe with a scholarship award given to Maya Jones of Southern University. In 2022, four women were selected from Southern University, UL-Lafayette, and LSU with a scholarship award given to Kayla Harris of Southern University. To view previous cohort members, click here.
