The Linda Frances Alexander Scholars Program (LFA) provides academic, social and cultural enrichment for students of the African Diaspora that empowers them to attain educational excellence and prepare for our competitive global society. Students enroll as new first-year or transfer student and will participate through their first year at UC Davis. A week-long residential program before classes begin, kicks off the first year with a culturally relevant introduction to university life that includes goal-setting, leadership training, academic advising and an introduction to university expectations. Linda Frances Alexander Scholars become campus and community leaders who exemplify successful Black scholarship and achievement.
