Two major donations to help UA students in financial need

TUCSON – A program at The University of Arizona received two giant donations on Tuesday, May 14th in order to help students in need.

The Arizona Assurance Program received $500,000 dollars from The Marshall Foundation.

Half of that donation will go towards the creation of a new Arizona Assurance Scholarship in honor of Edie Auslander.

Auslander was the head of fundraising for the program before her retirement in 2018.

The second donation of $185,000 came from UA Foundation Board Member Linda Robin, and her husband Kenneth. That donation is also in Auslander’s name.

The Arizona Assurance Program helps financially support Arizona students who have the ability to succeed at the U of A, but lack the financial means.
