MacKenzie Scott gift helps launch new scholarship

The Igniting Paths to Success Scholarship will award full tuition, fees and books to 1,000 students with financial need beginning this fall, helping to address an urgent need for many in the community struggling to access and prioritize higher education due to the challenges and uncertainties of the pandemic. The scholarship is made possible by a transformational gift from philanthropist and author MacKenzie Scott.
