Proceeds from Led Zeppelin's one-off reunion concert in 2007 have helped to fund a $41.6 million (£26 million) donation to the U.K.'s prestigious Oxford University.
Tickets for the legendary rock band's triumphant comeback gig in London cost fans $200 (£125) each and proceeds benefited the Ahmet Ertegun Education Fund - a charity set up in memory of the late music mogul.
Now the Atlantic Records founder's widow Mica has handed over sum raised to Oxford University officials, who will use the money to fund the newly-established Mica and Ahmet Ertegun Graduate Scholarship Programme in the Humanities.
The academic programme will award 15 scholarships a year to aid financially-strapped students enrolled in courses such as history, music and art history.
A special ceremony was held on Wednesday (29Feb12) to launch the fund, with Mica Ertegun and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones both in attendance.
Mica told the audience, "For Ahmet and for me, one of the great joys of life has been the study of history, music, languages, literature, art and archaeology.
"In these times, when there is so much strife in the world, I believe it is tremendously important to support those things that endure across time, that bind people together from every culture, and that enrich the capacity of human beings to understand one another and make the world a more humane place."
Ahmet Ertegun died in 2006.
