Funding for New Undergraduate Residence

The focus of the five-year gift, in accordance with the wishes of the Foundation, will be on promoting a robust and unified “Caltech experience” for all students. The gift will also provide support to expand and strengthen the Institute’s commitment to K−12 educational programs and engagement with students and teachers throughout California.

In recognition of the Foundation’s generous commitment, Caltech will name a new undergraduate residence, the Bechtel Residence, in honor of Caltech Life Trustee Stephen D. Bechtel, Jr.
