$3M for St. Mary’s – For scholarships

New York investment manager Julian Robertson and his wife, Josie, are giving $3 million to St. Mary’s School in Raleigh for a new scholarship program, The News & Observer in Raleigh reported May 22.

The couple, who last year created a $24 million endowment at Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, made a $1 million challenge, which the school already has matched by raising $1.5 million, the newspaper said.

The gift, the largest in the 159-year history of the Episcopal boarding and day school for girls, will provide two full scholarships a year to outstanding high school students.
