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."
