NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A couple of Tennessee State University pre-med majors have been awarded full scholarships that will also cover their medical school costs.

The university says Camille Haskins of King George, Virginia, and George Pickens IV of Miami learned this week of the scholarships provided by global medical products company Baxter International Inc.

Baxter announced last month that Tennessee State and Meharry Medical College were among three historically black colleges and universities that would receive support for Black students pursuing health and science degrees.
