Newsroom

UTRGV celebrates a momentous day in the history.

UTRGV is happy to announce it has received a transformative $40 million gift from philanthropists MacKenzie Scott and Dan Jewett to enhance its mission of student success and expanded educational opportunities. The grant will provide much-needed scholarship money for students not just as they enter college, but throughout their educational journey.

Ms. Scott and Mr. Jewett chose UTRGV based on UTRGV’s success as the second-largest Hispanic Serving Institution in the country and its proven ability to transform the lives of underserved students through higher education. Recently, UTRGV ranked first in Texas and fifth nationally in the performance of Pell-eligible students; first in Texas and 11th nationally in the performance of first-generation students; and second in Texas and 29th nationally in the social mobility of its students. UTRGV is also the first among national public universities with the lowest student debt.

Again, this is a truly significant honor for UTRGV that should be celebrated by all of us.  It is extremely grateful to Ms. Scott and Mr. Jewett for their incredible generosity. This gift, and the support it continues to receive from many others, will help UTRGV continue to transform the Rio Grande Valley and beyond.
