A $5 million gift to Lawrence Technological University will cover the cost of education for future engineering students and go to applicants based on academic merit primarily and also financial need and other qualifications. The Minks’ scholarship fund is one of the largest in LTU’s College of Engineering.
The donation from the trust of the late George and Dorothea G. Mink will pay for college tuition starting in the fall of 2016. Mink attended LTU and held several patents for material handling apparatus.
The scholarships will help Lawrence Tech attract and retain more top students, according to LTU President Virinder Moudgil.
“This generous bequest will have a profound impact on the lives of our students,” Moudgil said. “We are so grateful that Mr. and Mrs. Mink chose to share the priceless gift of a great education with so many other students today and for generations to come.”
