University of Minnesota creates scholarship program

The University of Minnesota has created a $100,000 scholarship program for Indian students.

Scott Davis donated the money to the school in honor of Richard Lussier, an Ojibwe from the Red Lake Nation. Davis credits Lussier with helping him overcome chemical dependency. Lussier passed way in the late 1990s.

The scholarship is available to Indian students who are enrolled in the school's General College.
