COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The nursing school at the University of Missouri has received $122,500 for diversity scholarships and programs.

The Columbia Missourian (http://bit.ly/1OyWIdd ) reports that the donation will create the Gregory and Diane Lind Diversity in Nursing Program. It will offer scholarships to undergraduate minority students pursuing nursing degrees beginning in spring 2016. The program also will provide annual stipends to student ambassadors who serve as mentors and coaches for underrepresented minority nursing students.

Gregory Lind received his master’s degree in nursing from MU in 1980 and said he hoped his gift would promote diversity in the nursing school.

The Linds live in Seattle where Gregory Lind operates a primary care walk-in clinic he founded in 1990.
