UM President, husband give $1M for student aid

Outgoing University of Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman and her husband are donating $1 million for scholarships at the Ann Arbor-based school.

The university announced Tuesday that the gift from Mary Sue and Kenneth M. Coleman will fund undergraduate and graduate students in international study, internships, service work and other opportunities.

The school says the gift is part of the Victors for Michigan campaign that starts Nov. 8.

The university says the Colemans have given $1.79 million during her 11-year tenure as president. She's retiring next July.

Mary Sue Coleman says her 3-months of study in Europe as an undergraduate changed her outlook about herself and what she wanted to do with her life.

Kenneth Coleman is a political scientist and traveled to Latin America as a graduate student.
