Wayne State University has received a gift of $4.4 million from the Evangeline L. Dumesnil Trust to provide scholarships for music students. “I am excited and grateful that the Evangeline L. Dumesnil Scholarship will become an enduring source of support and recognition for our outstanding music students,” said Matthew Seeger, dean of the College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts. “Our music students have committed themselves to developing and sharing their talent and creativity, and the Dumesnil Scholarship will help ensure their education is not a financial burden.” For 22 years, the Evangeline L. Dumesnil Trust has awarded scholarships to Wayne State students with outstanding musical talent and academic excellence. Nearly 350 students have been recognized as Dumesnil Scholars, and the scholarship has provided more than $1.7 million in tuition support.
