KSAS launches drive to fund Miriam D. Frankl scholarship

The Krieger School of Arts and Sciences has launched an initiative to raise funds for an endowed scholarship in memory of Miriam D. Frankl, Class of 2011. The selected KSAS undergraduate recipients of the scholarship will be chosen solely on financial need, and will be able to renew the scholarship for a total of four years.

A minimum of $100,000 must be raised in order to establish the endowed scholarship. Additional contributions can be added to the endowment at any time, thereby increasing the annual scholarship award.

There is a $25,000 challenge grant from an anonymous donor who will match all funds donated by June 30.

Gifts of cash or securities can be made to the endowment; corporate matching gifts are also welcome and will double, sometimes triple, the giving power of a donation.

Gifts to the Miriam D. Frankl Memorial Scholarship can be made several ways: by personal check to the School of Arts and Sciences at 3400 N. Charles St., Wyman Building, Suite 500-W, Baltimore, MD 21218; online at http://giving.jhu.edu/online; by credit card over the phone, 800-548-5422; or, for appreciated securities, by contacting Lisa Manfuso in the JHU Office of Gift Planning at 410-516-7954. All donors should indicate that their gift is for the Miriam D. Frankl Memorial Scholarship.
