INDIANAPOLIS - Martin University announced today it has received a grant totaling $35,000 from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust.
”This grant will fund computer/technology upgrades in our Aerospace Education Lab (AEL) as well as additional STEM enrichment activities for area youth. The Pulliam Trust has been a great supporter of the program at Martin University since its inception in 2010. Over the years, we have served more than 2,300 area youth who might not otherwise have had the opportunity to benefit from the direct exposure and hands-on experience offered by this program,” said Dr. Eugene White, president of Martin University.
“During her career, Nina Mason Pulliam shared her financial success and business leadership skills with many charities.  She had a keen awareness of challenges that face our community and would take great pride in the outstanding work being done by organizations like Martin University," said Carol Schilling, Trustee chair.  "Through her Trust, we continue to build on her legacy, which clearly reflects her heart for philanthropy."
The grant to Martin represents one of 23 awarded to nonprofit organizations in Indiana by the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust during the first of two grant cycles this year. Since the Trust began its grant making in 1998, it has awarded more than $260 million to 933 nonprofit organizations in its home states of Indiana and Arizona.  For more information about the Trust and its programs visit
