The Michigan Difference

Giving back
Two Michigan engineering students have made a lasting impact on the university through philanthropy. After receiving a $50,000 gift from his parents, Inder Dhillon, right, created the Dhillon-Randhawa Family Educational Scholarship Fund at the College of Engineering. And after engineering graduate Jessica Lea Zembala died in 2003, her mother started the Jessica Lea Zembala Memorial Scholarship Fund in her memory.
