Alumni gift establishes new student scholarship

A new scholarship fund at the University of Kansas School of Law will provide support to candidates who contribute to the diversity of the student body.

Julia Gille Anderson and Jett Anderson, both L’82, established the Anderson Family Law Diversity Scholarship with a $75,000 gift commitment to KU Endowment.

The two KU Law graduates have always been appreciative of the education they received at KU Law, Julia Gille Anderson said. They chose to fund a scholarship supporting diversity in the student body because “America’s greatest strength lies in her diversity,” Anderson said.

“We are establishing this scholarship in support of KU Law students continuing to be representative of our society as a whole,” she said.
