“We wanted this current generation of students, no matter their background, to have the same opportunities we did after graduation without the burden of overwhelming debt,” Bruce said. “We also very much support the school's objective to build an even more diverse student experience and hope that our support will contribute to this objective.”

Easing the burden

Susan Jacobs Bichel (‘73 management, ‘75 MBA)

Bichel initially created the scholarship in her name for a Moore School student who had been in the foster care system. Having participated in a mentoring program for foster children, she knew the struggles these children face in affording a college education.

A resident of Greenville, South Carolina, Bichel agreed the scholarship could also be awarded to a student with financial need.
