LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - The co-founder of Garmin International is donating $1 million to the University of Kansas School of Engineering.

The university announced Thursday that the gift from Min Kao’s family foundation will be used for scholarships and programs at the engineering school.

Half of the money will fund the Min H. Kao Engineering Design Studio. The university says the other half of the gift will establish the Garmin Excellence Scholarship in the school’s electrical engineering and computer science department. And Garmin plans to start a mentorship program between the Olathe-based company and the engineering school.
