DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — The University of New Hampshire is getting more than $8 million in student support and scholarships.
A gift of $5 million is coming from long-time benefactor Dana Hamel, whose family established a program in 2007 for students who have demonstrated academic excellence, leadership, and community involvement.
J. Morgan Rutman and his wife, Tara, in partnership with the Jane and Daniel Och Family Foundation, and Brian McCabe and his wife, Loren, donated $3 million and $400,000, respectively.
The majority of the Rutman and Och Family Foundation gift will provide scholarships and support to increase efforts by the Paul College of Business and Economics to attract more women of diverse backgrounds into business and economics education, and prepare all students to appreciate the value of gender diversity in leadership.
