Thunderbird School of Management alum Merle Hinrichs recently donated a $100,000 grant to fund veteran scholarships at the school. A 1965 graduate of Thunderbird, Hinrichs and his wife promised the grant as a way to get more veterans access to the Glendale school’s programs.
“Thunderbird students are unique in that they receive a great business education. They are global. They are among the most engaged group of people in their communities,” Hinrichs said. “This scholarship should go to those veterans who have learned a lot from being involved in war and who wish to be involved in the global community of business.”
The scholarship was announced at the recent dedication ceremony of the Thunderbird Tower, a historic airfield control tower that helped pilots train during World War II. Hinrichs and his wife Miriam pledged $2 million to the project.
