Originally published in Philanthropy News Digest

Koret will award $9.5 million to nine Bay Area colleges and universities over the next five years for the Koret Scholars program, which helps first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented minority college students overcome barriers to persistence and degree completion. Koret Foundation president Michael Boskin says, “These scholarships are even more important so universities can create greater access to quality education for these young people at this most trying time.”
