A new $1 million gift from The Ryan Family Foundation doubles the size of the Ryan Family Scholars
Program and adds additional internship support for all program participants while also creating a
new research institute.
Jenny Darroch, dean of the Farmer School of Business and Mitchell P. Rales Chair in Business
Leadership, commented, “The Ryans’ doubling down on their commitment is truly extraordinary. We have seen the life-changing impact the Ryan Family Scholars Program has on current program participants and we look forward to welcoming an even bigger cohort. The creation of the institute is a tremendous example of purpose-driven gifting, and we are excited for the opportunities it presents.”
