LSUA is pleased to announce the re-establishment of the Mary Jane Brown Endowed Scholarship thanks to a generous donation by Mark and Yuvonka Brown.

On Friday, July 15, the Browns contributed $30,000 to the LSUA Foundation with a pledge for an additional $30,000 in the upcoming months. Together, these two donations will re-establish the scholarship in his mother’s name.

The total amount of $60,000 will be used to apply for a Board of Regents match of $40,000 in the spring of 2017. Once matched, this $100,000 endowed scholarship will benefit first generation students at LSUA.
