Mānoa alumnus Leonard Kamp and his wife Rebecca gifted $460,000 to establish scholarships at Mānoa’s Shidler College of Business and College of Engineering. The Leonard and Rebecca Kamp Executive MBA Endowed Scholarship and the Leonard and Rebecca Kamp Endowed Scholarship in Civil Engineering will provide ongoing tuition support for students in the executive MBA and civil engineering programs.

“The University of Hawaiʻi has been good to me and my wife Becky,” says Kamp (BS in civil engineering, ’67 and executive MBA, ’82). “We are extremely fortunate to be in a position to give back to the university to ensure that talented and deserving students continue to receive a world-class education. We hope one day the scholarship recipients will pass on their knowledge and support to advance the public good.”

“We are extremely grateful for the Kamp’s support of our civil engineering program,” says Peter E. Crouch, dean of the College of Engineering. “This generous gift from Lenny and Becky will help us attract top students with the skills and leadership qualities to develop stronger, safer, and sustainable communities worldwide.”

“Lenny and Becky have shown a remarkable commitment to the Shidler College of Business and its students,” says V. Vance Roley, dean of the Shidler College of Business. “In addition to this recent gift, they established a $50,000 endowed scholarship in 2008 to support undergraduate and graduate business students, and continue to be great supporters of our alumni fundraising activities.”
