George Mason University will rename the law school and endow a scholarship in the name of the recently deceased Justice Antonin Scalia, the Koch brothers will be funding the move.

"The February death of Scalia was a heavy blow to the nation’s conservative moment, which regarded the justice and former law professor as one of its greatest intellectuals. But Scalia’s legacy will live on at GMU, which is renaming a law school and endowing a scholarship in his name.

"George Mason recently announced $30 million worth of pledges to the university’s law school. A large chunk of those funds—$10 million to be exact—will come from the Charles Koch Foundation, while the remaining $20 million came from an anonymous commitment. Taken together, the gifts comprise the largest donation in the school’s history."--L.S. Hall, Inside Philanthropy
