IPFW announced Tuesday afternoon that it will receive a $1.5 million gift from Howard and Betsy Chapman toward its honors scholars program. A third of that donation will go to the library to create an honors program space.

The money is in addition to $3 million they have given to the Chapman Scholars Program. The program selects four incoming freshmen who are distinguished as high achievers in and out of the classroom each year. They receive tuition, fees, room and board, and textbooks at no cost for four years, according to IPFW's website.

The couple have given $7 million to the university the past several years.
