TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - Florida State University announces a new four year scholarship for African-American students attending the university from south Florida. 

The new scholarship program was made possible, thanks to a $1.2 million gift from J.M. Family Enterprises.

College bound African-American high school seniors who live in south Florida will be able to compete for the "African-American Youth Achiever Endowed Scholarship," which will award students $12,000 each year. A freshman will be accepted for the scholarship each year.

This year's youth achiever will be named on April 20th.
