MIDDLEBURY, Conn. (AP) - A $1 million gift from a physician and his wife to the University of Connecticut will help faculty develop curriculum.

The Republican-American reports (https://bit.ly/103ljox ) that the gift from Dr. David Reed and his wife, Joan, will fund the Reed Fellowship.

Reed said the fellows will share teaching techniques in workshops for UConn Waterbury faculty and teach for a semester in Waterbury. The first fellow will be selected in the spring.

Growing up in Naugatuck, Reed attended school at UConn’s campus when it was at the former Begnal School in Waterbury. He hopes the fellowship will benefit students who cannot afford to attend college far from home.

Sally Reis, vice provost for academic affairs at UConn’s Waterbury campus, said tens of thousands of dollars in interest from the endowment will allow the fellowship to continue perpetually.
