Three estates have gifted the University of Louisville a combined $9 million, which will be used for scholarships, infrastructure and more, according to a statement from the university. 

Bob Ling’s estate gave the university $4.7 million, which will form the J.T. Ling, MD Endowed Chair in Radiology in honor of his father. 

Emily Spradlin’s estate is responsible for $2.7 million of the sum, half of which will form the Dr. Marion Carroll Spradlin Endowed Scholarship Fund for the School of Medicine. The other half hasn’t been assigned, according to a university statement, and the Dean of Libraries will be responsible for distribution.

“The announcement of these recent planned gifts is a realization of the unwavering support for the University of Louisville,” vice president of university advancement Bradley Shafer said in a statement.

“This inspiring and enduring generosity from these Conn Legacy Society members allows us to continue to meet the challenges we face during this critical time and move UofL forward under Dr. Bendapudi’s vision.”
