Jun 24, 2019   |   The College Post

"Dartmouth College has received a gift to extend support to underrepresented students in STEM fields, Philip J. Hanlon, the school’s president, announced in a release," writes The College Post.

"The $150,000 donation, made by alumni Merinda and Ben Wilson, will go towards the E.E. Just Program, providing more opportunities to underrepresented students in the form of mentorships, research internships and undergraduate fellowships.

“'Humankind has never needed brilliant young minds in the sciences, technology, and math more than today—and each of these disciplines demands broadly educated, creative professionals who reflect the diversity of our global society,' Hanlon said."
