Wait a minute...you're talking about $25M, aren't you? That is a lot of moolah.

I'd set up a council of administrators to monitor the money as it would be dispersed into about 100 or so different worldwide interest-bearing investments. Each of these investments could earn about $5,000 a year after taxes and expenses. These investments would be monitored by the council so that the money would remain invested and/or banked wisely. The principal would remain untouched, and the interest would be awarded. These awards would be used for scholarships across the world.

That's what I would do with $25M. History buffs know that this idea isn't original with me. Somebody else thought of it YEARS ago. Know who?
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.
