Camille Armstrong Memorial Scholarship
The Camille Armstrong Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to award deserving undergraduate African-American students at UAB considering the field of law. The scholarship is named for a UAB political science senior who was tragically killed in an automobile accident on March 11, 1986.
