"Worcester Polytechnic Institute announced Friday that it has raised $248 million in the largest capital campaign in the university’s 150-year history. The campaign, launched in 2008, attracted some 17,000 donors, including more than 10,000 alumni, the college said in a statement. Friends, foundations, and corporations also contributed. Among other things, the money will be used to provide more need-based scholarships to the university’s Global Projects Program. The program sends students overseas to solve real-world problems on energy, food, health, and urban sustainability."
All part of the cycle.
