LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation is giving $1 million to the William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

University officials say the gift allocated over the next three years will be used to recruit and retain students.

The money will also go toward student programming and research grants.

The foundation was created by Hilton Hotels founder Conrad Hilton in 1944.
