The inventor of magicJack, an Internet phone device, has contributed $500,000 to fund three full scholarships at Widener University for siblings or dependents of victims of the Connecticut mass shooting last week. The university announced Friday that it would fund a fourth full scholarship and cover room and board for all the scholarships.
Daniel Borislow, an alumnus of the Chester university and chief executive officer of the company that sells magicJack, said he hoped other CEOs and business leaders would fund similar scholarships at their alma maters.
"If there ever was a time to give, now is the time. If each CEO would donate just one scholarship to their alma maters, we would have this covered," Borislow said.
