OXFORD, Ohio (AP) — A $1 million grant to a southwest Ohio university's business school will help with expenses for business school students studying abroad.

Miami University's Farmer School of Business says alumnus Jack Anderson and his wife Rose-Marie Anderson recently presented the gift to the Roger L. Jenkins International Scholarship fund.

The scholarships are open to all Farmer School students seeking to study abroad and will be awarded based upon academic merit and financial need. Funds may be applied to tuition, travel costs, room and board and incidental expenses.

Jack Anderson graduated from Miami's School of Business Administration in 1947 and has served as chairman of the Farmer School's Business Advisory Council.

About 60 percent of the business schools' students participate in an international program as part of their undergraduate studies.
