FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Marti and Wayne Huizenga and AutoNation are donating more than $1 million to fund a program for disadvantaged students who want to attend Nova Southeastern University.
The fund announced Monday night will fund the Pathway Scholars program.
The South Florida Sun Sentinel (http://sunsent.nl/s0SuxR ) reports the university's H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship will work with Take Stock in Children of Broward County to identify students.
The program will also provide internships, mentorships with business leaders and academic support.
The first recipients will begin school next summer.
According to the newspaper, AutoNation's gift of $60,000 will help one student through four years at Nova. The Huizengas donation - along with other corporate sponsors - will assist 15 to 20 students each year.
