USU Expands Huntsman Scholar Program, Launches Center for Growth and Opportunity

Utah State University has announced the expansion of its Huntsman Scholar Program and the launch of the Center for Growth and Opportunity, following a $50 million joint gift from the Charles Koch Foundation and the Huntsman Foundation.

The new center will explore today’s most pressing issues through economic research and student engagement, and will engage in a variety of activities such as scholarly research, workshops, and student career exploration.

“Jon Huntsman challenged us 10 years ago, when he made his initial gift to Utah State, to produce students who can compete with the best and brightest anywhere in the world,” said Huntsman School Dean Douglas D. Anderson. “We have been on quite a journey since then, and I am so thrilled that he and his friend Charles Koch believe in what we have done and in what we can become.”
