Chapman receives $10 million

In Local News

Chapman University announced Friday that a couple will commit $10 million to the school to fund need-based scholarships, according to the Orange County Register.

The donors, Christine and Lon Cross, had never been to Chapman before and found the students’ devotion to learning along with the atmosphere of the campus appealing.

Chapman President Jim Doti made the announcement during his annual State of the University address.

“Of all gifts that a donor can bestow upon a university, nothing has more impact on students than scholarships,” Doti said. “We are immensely grateful to Christine for her generous commitment, which will open the door to a Chapman education to countless students in years to come.”

The $10-million gift will establish a permanent Christine and Lon Cross Endowed Scholarship Fund. This will be the largest gift the university has ever received.
