“UGA has been my dream school for so long,” Justin Edge said. “This is the school for me. It’s a great institution.” That dream became a reality for Edge and three other first-year law students named to the initial group of Benham Scholars thanks, in part, to New Approaches to Promote Diversity and Inclusion grants, which supports the program by funding the students’ participation in the school’s early start program in addition to offering academic support and professional development opportunities. The Benham Scholars program, named for Robert Benham, the first African American to serve on the Supreme Court of Georgia and the second African American graduate of UGA’s School of Law, is just one of the 21 grant proposals funded through the program, which was announced by UGA President Jere W. Morehead in August 2017.
