$15M donation establishes Doswell School of Aeronautical Sciences at Texas Women’s University

Members of the Dallas-based Doswell Foundation board formally signed an agreement with the Texas Woman’s University System Board of Regents on Aug. 11, marking the foundation’s historic $15 million gift to TWU establishing the Doswell School of Aeronautical Sciences.

The school aims to address a nationwide pilot shortage and increase the number of women commercial pilots. Doswell Foundation CEO and Chairman Beverly Fricke and foundation board members celebrated the partnership a day earlier at a special dinner with Board of Regents Chair Stacie McDavid and fellow regents.

During the regents’ board meeting, the foundation presented Texas Woman’s Chancellor Carine Feyten with an initial payment of $1 million. The aeronautical sciences program is expected to begin enrolling students in August 2024. The Doswell Foundation and the late philanthropist Florence Doswell have been longtime supporters of TWU’s College of Nursing. publishes every week.
