Oakwood University in Huntsville established a George Floyd Memorial Scholarship.

This comes after the president of North Central University in Minneapolis challenged schools across the country to follow their lead at Floyd's funeral service last week. Floyd died in police custody in Minneapolis on May 25.

The goal of the scholarship is to invest in and support the Black community.
