KU Journalism School Gets $1.36 Million Bequest

KSAL StaffJuly 26, 2013

The University of Kansas journalism school has received a $1.36 million bequest from the estate of a Kansas couple.

The university’s Endowment Association announced Thursday that the bequest from John and Mary Kaiser will be added to a scholarship fund for journalism students that the couple started in 2005.

The Lawrence Journal World reports Mary Kaiser died in January at age 84. Her husband died in 2007 at 79.

John Kaiser was a 1951 Kansas journalism graduate. The journalism school has awarded Kaiser Scholarships to nine students since 2005. The new bequest will allow the fund to more than double that number.

Each scholarship lasts four years, and some have paid for a student’s entire college education, which was the Kaisers’ wish.
