Mariska Hargitay establishes UCLA acting scholarship
This post has been corrected. Please see note at bottom for details.
"Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" star Mariska Hargitay is supporting her alma mater, the UCLA School of Theater Film and Television, with a $100,000 donation toward an acting scholarship.
"The scholarship, to be named "The Mariska Hargitay Scholarship for Acting Students," will be earmarked for graduate and undergraduate studies and will be awarded to students "based on need and merit," said principals with the school.
[For the record, 3:45 p.m., Sept. 27. An earlier version of this post identified the UCLA school as the UCLA School of Theater Arts and Television instead of the UCLA School of Theater Film and Television.]
