A $10 million gift to the University of Richmond will support scholarships for Robins School of Business students.
The donation from a Robins School alumnus, who prefers to remain anonymous, will establish an endowed scholarship fund.
“This generous gift will support students pursuing careers in finance, management, economics, marketing, analytics, accounting, and more,” said Mickey Quiñones, dean of the Robins School of Business. “Many of our students receive scholarship support to attend Richmond, and I’m grateful this alum was inspired by his own experiences to help make that possible for even more students.”
The alum, who studied accounting and finance, worked his way through college, stocking groceries to fund his tuition and other expenses. He says he established this scholarship to help make a Richmond education accessible for other ambitious students like himself. He hopes that the scholarship recipients will one day add to the fund as well, to pay it forward to future generations of Spiders.
“Access and affordability are among our highest priorities at the University of Richmond. We offer an exceptional educational experience for outstanding students from all over the country and world,” said President Kevin F. Hallock. “This gift will have an incredible impact on our ability to enhance financial support for remarkable students, and it is an inspiring example of Spiders helping Spiders. I am profoundly grateful to this alumnus for his commitment.”
