Roger and Judith Benson

Roger Benson '58 and Judith Benson '60

In 2004, the Bensons made a heartfelt donation, establishing the Benson Family Fellowship Fund in the School of Nursing, as well as a fellowship in the Anderson School of Management, to honor their time together at UCLA where they met and fell in love. Their goal in establishing a fellowship in nursing was to provide financial assistance to graduate students so they may pursue their dreams of becoming nurses, just as Judy did. Judy recently made an additional generous gift to the Fund in memory of her late husband Roger, who passed away in 2016. Due to the generosity of the Bensons, numerous students have received financial assistance since the inception of the Fund.
