JUNEAU- Two cruise lines have donated $1 million to the University of Alaska system.

The money from Princess Cruise Lines, Ltd. and Holland America Line Inc. will be gifted to programs on three UA campuses over three years.
 
More than half the donation will go toward renovating Cuddy Hall at the University of Alaska Anchorage. Money is also slated for the marine science competition sponsored by the University of Alaska Fairbanks and scholarships for rural students in the University of Alaska Southeast's science, technology, engineering and mathematics programs. A museum exhibit, coastal management program and entrepreneurial program also will benefit.
University of Alaska President Pat Gamble says the reach of the donation will leave an indelible mark on the lives of many UA researchers and students.
