Former Vice President Dan Quayle and his wife, Marilyn, have created a scholarship for students at Indiana University School of Law-Indianapolis through an endowed gift of $200,000. The Quayles both earned their law degrees from the school in 1974.
“Dan and Marilyn have been loyal supporters of the law school since they graduated,” said Dean Gary R. Roberts. “This generous gift provides much-needed scholarship support for students, which is essential in today’s economy and will help us educate individuals that will assume leadership positions in various aspects of society.”
This gift is part of the law school’s “Impact Campaign,” a major fundraising effort aimed at increasing resources for student scholarships, faculty development, centers of excellence, and experiential learning programs.
The Quayles both practiced law in Indiana prior to Dan Quayle’s election to the U.S. Congress in 1976. He served in Congress from 1977 to 1981, and in the U.S. Senate from 1981 to 1989, before becoming vice president. He is currently chairman of Cerberus Global Investments. Marilyn Quayle was a partner with Indianapolis firm Krieg DeVault from 1993 to 2001.
