There has been a string of big gifts recently — most likely tied to the surging stock market — and University of Chicago was the recipient of one for $125 million from hedge fund manager Kenneth Griffin. The gift represents the second largest in the university’s history and U of C has now received over $350 million in large gifts so far this year.
The gift will mostly fund the economics department which has now been renamed the Kenneth C. Griffin Department of Economics.
Best of luck with your applications!
