`It’s the sort of gift that Bill Gates Sr. wanted from his son.
[..] when Bill Gates Sr. turned 80 Wednesday, his son surprised him with this: an 80-year scholarship program for the University of Washington School of Law in the elder Gates’ name.
The length of the scholarship is a nod to Bill Gates Sr.’s age; the law school is his alma mater.
The cost: $33.3 million. The deal: Five students get a full-ride scholarship each year. In exchange, they commit to working seven years in public service after graduation — for instance, for a legal aid or advocacy agency, a nonprofit, as a public defender or prosecutor.’
This is the first time Bill Gates has done anything I don’t instantly find offensive in one way or another. ðŸ™‚
