Boston College's Presidential Scholars Program, which provides an integrated educational experience within the University's honors program for approximately 72 of BC's most accomplished students, has been named the Gabelli Presidential Scholars Program, as a result of a major gift from the Gabelli Family Foundation.

Mario Gabelli, a Boston College trustee and chairman and CEO of GAMCO Investors, has been one of the program's most generous and ardent supporters since its inception in 1991.
