MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State University's College of Architecture, Planning & Design has received an $8 million gift, the largest in the design college's history.

The university said in a news release Wednesday that the donors asked to remain anonymous.

APDesign Dean Tim de Noble says the gift will be invested, with an expected distribution of about $400,000 annually. Most of the annual distributions will support full-ride scholarships for Kansas students with financial need and a minimum 3.5 grade point average who are in at least their third year of study in the design college.

The donors also asked that part of the distributions for the dean's excellence fund, which helps address emerging opportunities and priorities.

The gift is a part of Kansas State University's $1 billion Innovation and Inspiration Campaign.
