U.Va. Receives $6 Million Gift for Financial Aid; Nursing Scholarship Included in Bequest from Late Alumnus
AN ESTATE BEQUEST of $6 million from the late Albemarle County educator Mortimer Y. Sutherland Jr. (left), who died in January at age 92, has been designated for financial aid at the University of Virginia. Three-quarters of the gift will create the M.Y. Sutherland Jr. Scholarship Fund, an endowment that will generate support for need-based scholarships, with a preference for students from Albemarle County. The remaining 25 percent will create the Helen Sutherland Berkeley Nursing Scholarship, named in honor of his sister, who graduated from the University’s School of Nursing in 1932. Full story.
