A married couple who want to remain anonymous are giving $20 million to help fund student scholarships at USC, officials announced Tuesday.

Eight million dollars will go toward undergraduate aid in the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences; $6 million is targeted for USC’s School of Social Work; and $6 million is targeted for its Marshall School of Business.

At their own request, the donors are being identified only as longtime USC supporters, according to a campus announcement.

“Their extraordinary gift will bring the dream of a USC education to deserving students for many generations to come,” USC President C.L. Max Nikias said in a statement.
