The WCHAS is very proud to announce the inception of the Clarence “Inky” Jungwirth Scholarship Fund. Mr. Jungwirth was a scholar of local history and authored several books about Oshkosh and Winnebago County. As a beneficiary of his memorial fund, the WCHAS agreed to use those dollars to promote one of Mr. Jungwirth’s greatest passions, which was education. Each year, one student in grades 6-12 and one student in higher education (university, tech school, junior college) will each be awarded a $500 scholarship to support a historical project they are completing.
Recipients must have residence in Winnebago County, Wisconsin to qualify. Candidates should complete the online scholarship application, attach a cover letter, two letters of recommendation, and electronically submit the materials by May 24, 2019.
Winners will be announced by June 7, 2019.
