Redstone gives $1.5 million to schools

Alma maters Harvard, Boston Latin Schools benefit

Sumner Redstone is spreading his wealth around to educational institutions, making a $1.5 million donation to Harvard U. and Boston Latin School.

Redstone’s $1 million donation to his alma maters Harvard College and Harvard Law School will be used to establish scholarships for 20 undergrads, as well as funding for 10 post-graduate public service fellowships. Redstone has given $500,000 to Boston Latin School, of which he is also a graduate.

“As the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s presidency nears, we reflect on how his influence sparked an era of optimism, activism and national service,” Redstone said, “I have established these scholarships to help celebrate President Kennedy’s spirit by fostering a focus on education and a renewed commitment to public service.”
