Scholarship Fund Drive to Honor African-American Admissions Officer at Harvard Quadruples Its Goal

Three years ago Harvard University announced a campaign to endow a scholarship fund in the name of longtime African-American senior admissions officer David L. Evans. The target was to raise $250,000 to fund a single scholarship for a student from an underrepresented minority.

To date, more than $1 million has been raised to fund the Evans Scholarship and three students at Harvard are currently having their tuition paid for by the fund. More than 600 alumni have directed their contributions to the fund.
