Music moguls Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre announced a $70 million endowment to USC to start an academy for undergraduate students interested in marketing, entrepreneurship, computer science and engineering related to the music business.
The first class of the Iovine and Young Academy will enroll 25 students in 2014.
“The vision and generosity of Jimmy Iovine and Andre Young will profoundly influence the way all of us perceive and experience artistic media,” said USC President C. L. Max Nikias in a press release.
Iovine and Dr. Dre aren’t alone in their gifts to universities. Check out our infographic below with other celeb gifts to educational institutions.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
