Hearst Foundation Grant Will Help Recruit More Academically-Talented Students
The Board of Directors of the William Randolph Hearst Foundation has awarded Nebraska Wesleyan University a grant of $100,000.
The funds will be added to the existing William Randolph Hearst Endowed Scholarship Fund at NWU, bringing the contributions to the Hearst Fund to $300,000.
The contribution will benefit two or three more high achieving students who demonstrate financial need.
The existing Hearst Endowed Fund provides six scholarships per year. The $100,000 increase will result in eight or nine students per year who will be able to pursue an education at Nebraska Wesleyan University with less financial burden.
Nebraska Wesleyan University provides equal educational opportunities to all qualified persons in all areas of university operation, including education and decisions regarding faculty appointment, promotion or tenure, without regard to race, religion, age, sex, creed, color, disability, marital status, national or ethnic origin or sexual orientation.
