ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The University of Alaska at Anchorage has been given $7 million by a mystery donor who has so far gifted at least $81.5 million to 14 colleges all run by women.
School chancellor Fran Ulmer announced the donation on Friday.
School officials say $6 million will be used for scholarships targeting women and minorities and the rest will go towards a new science learning center opening next fall.
About 20,000 students are currently enrolled at the school.
The anonymous donor has been continously giving the money over the past two months to colleges run by women.
Michigan's Kalamazoo College and New York's Hunter College also announced gifts from the anonymous donor eariler in the week.
