Yes, I loved my Semester in London and would like to support that program’s Gallagher Scholarship Endowment. In the earliest years of the program, Helene Cecile “Nina” Gallagher was an enthusiastic participant. After her untimely death just a year later on the Harrisonburg campus, her friends established a fund to help other students have the same sort of enriching experience Nina enjoyed. In recent years, her family’s substantial contribution created this endowment to ensure that the scholarship will continue in perpetuity.
Yes, I loved my Semester in London and would like to support that program’s Dunbar ’80 Scholarship Endowment. In establishing this endowment to assist students with demonstrated financial need, Kevin Dunbar wrote, “I will always remember my London experience as one of the highlights of my college years. So it is especially gratifying for me to know that my gift to JMU will be used to provide financial aid to a deserving JMU student who might not otherwise be able to enjoy the ‘London Abroad’ experience.”
