Journalism students

beneficiaries of scholarship

A $150,000 gift from the estate of a Kansas attorney has been used to establish a new scholarship for Kansas University journalism students.

The gift to the Kansas University Endowment Association will memorialize David H. Anderson. Anderson, a 1964 graduate of Clifton High School, Clifton, received a bachelor's degree in journalism at KU in 1968. He went on to complete his law degree at the KU School of Law in 1971.

Anderson did a legal apprenticeship in Salina before opening a private practice in Frankfort. He died of cancer in December 1995 at the age of 49.

"A primary goal of the School of Journalism is to establish endowed scholarships, and we are deeply grateful for the generous gift from Mr. Anderson," Dean of Journalism Mike Kautsch said. "It will significantly enhance the school's recruitment of high-ability students. We will be privileged to award scholarships in Mr. Anderson's name to students who can flourish in our professionally oriented program and become leaders in journalism and mass communications."

Students in the School of Journalism and Mass Communications from Midwestern states will receive preference for awards from the David H. Anderson Memorial Scholarship Fund.
