Garner creates scholarship
Stuart Garner, LBJ Class of '96, has established a new scholarship fund to benefit deserving students at the LBJ School.
Administered by the UT Ex-Students' Association, the Grace Dellinger Memorial Texas Leader Scholarship has the sole purpose of providing financial aid to a student who otherwise would not be financially able to enroll in and finish a particular semester. The recipient must be an ethnic minority student pursuing a master's degree at the LBJ School.
The scholarship, funded at $3,500 a year, may be split among several students each year, and need not follow the same student for successive years. The first award was made this spring.

This year's reception for LBJ School alumni, interns, and friends in the Washington, D.C., area is being cohosted by Dean Ed Dorn and U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Tex.).
The event is scheduled for Wednesday, June 17, from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. in Room SC 5 of the Capitol Building. For more information, contact the LBJ School's Office of Student and Alumni Programs at (512) 471-4292.
