Marquette receives $1 million gift to support first-generation scholarship

First-generation students will have new opportunity at Marquette thanks to a generous $1 million gift from alumnus Barry C. Cosgrove and his wife, Ingrid. The gift will support student recipients in the College of Business Administration and those majoring in journalism.

“Barry is another outstanding product of Marquette’s Educational Opportunity Program – a program that will soon celebrate its 50th anniversary,” said President Michael R. Lovell. “We’re grateful that he’s now creating opportunities for others, opening similar paths for students into the future.”
