FORT COLLINS, COLO. (AP) - Temple Grandin, an autistic educator who was featured in an HBO documentary, will have a scholarship established in her name at Colorado State University.

The university said Tuesday the scholarship will be called the Temple Grandin Scholarship in Animal Behavior and Welfare. She’s a professor of animal sciences at CSU.

McDonald’s Corp. is the lead contributor to the fund.

Colorado State University says the scholarship will support Grandin’s teaching and research by assisting her graduate students.

HBO’s 2010 biography, called “Temple Grandin,” won seven Emmy Awards, a Golden Globe and a Peabody Award.

Time Magazine named Grandin one of its “100 Most Influential People in the World” last year.
