PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) Pittsburg State University has received a $100,000 donation for scholarships.
The Joplin Globe reports that the gift is from two family members who want to stay anonymous.
Kathleen Flannery, Pittsburg State’s director of development, says the donation will be used to set up scholarships that will be available beginning next fall.
She says recipients of the scholarships must be technology majors from southeast Kansas, with preference given to high school graduates from Neosho, Cherokee and Labette counties. Students will also have to show financial need and have an overall grade point average of 2.0 to be selected and for scholarship renewal.
Flannery says the gift is part of a university campaign launched last year to raise $12 million in scholarship endowments.
