PHILADELPHIA – Tina Fey and her brother have established a scholarship at Philadelphia's Temple University in memory of their late father.
The actress announced the Donald H. Fey Memorial Scholarship on Wednesday night's "The Tonight Show." Her father studied journalism at Temple and graduated in 1966.
Upper Darby native Fey told "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon the scholarship is targeted toward veterans who attend Temple's media and communication school. Her father served in the Korean War and died in October.
Temple School of Media and Communication Dean David Boardman tells The Philadelphia Inquirer (http://bit.ly/1oSKIh3 ) the fund has received some sizable gifts, including from Fallon.
Fey was on Fallon's show promoting "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot," a comic drama about war reporting starring Fey as a rookie correspondent finding her way.
