Record producer, Rapper and Entrepreneur-Dr. Dre has donated $70 million to USC to help train and inspire a new generation of innovators.
Music industry executive Jimmy Lovine also added something up to the donation which will allow USC to create what it described as an ?entirely new model for training and inspiring a new generation of innovators?.
The goal of the USC Jimmy Lovine and Andre Young Academy for Arts, Technology and the Business of Innovation ?is to shape the future by nurturing the talents, passions, leadership and risk-taking of uniquely qualified students who challenge conventional views of art and industry,? according to USC.
The academy will enroll its first class of 25 students in fall 2014.
Applicants will be accepted based on a rigorous review process encompassing demonstrated academic excellence as well as proven ability for original thought.
Good work Dre and Lovine!
