Anonymous donors have given Pittsburg State University $100,000 to spend on scholarships for technology majors from southeast Kansas.

The school said in a news release Wednesday that preference will be given to high school graduates from Neosho, Cherokee or Labette counties. Recipients also need to demonstrate financial need and have an overall grade point average of 2.0.

University Development Director Kathleen Flannery says the donors hope the money will benefit students who are willing to work hard but lack resources.

The school is in the midst of a three-year campaign whose goal is to raise an additional $12 million for scholarships. Flannery says the donors' gift will help the school meet the goal.

Pittsburg State provided more than $2.5 million in scholarships to students last year.
