A Leavenworth family has donated $10,000 to Kansas University to establish a scholarship fund for graduates of Kansas high schools.

The family of 1976 KU graduate Robert Charles Jarvis endowed the scholarship -- in memory of Jarvis -- at the KU Endowment Association to provide scholarships for undergraduate or graduate students in the college of liberal arts and sciences.

The funds will be used with a preference for graduates of high schools in the state.

Jarvis, a 1972 Leavenworth High graduate who received a medical degree from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1980, died from leukemia in December 1990.
