DURHAM, N.H. — Students from Berlin High School are getting some extra help to attend the University of New Hampshire.

Craig and Linda Rydin, who both grew up in Berlin, recently made a seven-figure gift to UNH that will nearly double the scholarship amount given to students who are awarded the Rydin Family Scholarship each year.

Linda Rydin graduated from UNH in 1971. Craig Rydin graduated two years later. They said helping students in Berlin attend UNH is a perfect way to pay tribute to the two institutions that provided them with the foundations for success.

The decade-old need-based scholarships are awarded each year to 20 qualified graduating seniors from Berlin High School.
