Mariska Hargitay Donates $100,000 to a College Scholarship!

Mariska Hargitay has generously donated $100,000 to the UCLA School of Theater, Film, and Television for an acting scholarship, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The 47-year-old Law & Order: SVU actress gave the money for a scholarship, now named the Mariska Hargitay Scholarship for Acting Students, to theatre students based on merit need.

“After all I have received from TFT for my journey as an actor; I am so excited to give back,” Mariska said in a statement.

“My education there not only gave me an invaluable foundation for my craft, but also lit the fire of enthusiasm, perseverance and pursuit of excellence that has fueled me ever since,” she continued.

This past June, Mariska was the commencement speaker for UCLA’s School of Theatre, Film, and Television.
