Dave Edwards Scholarship

The Dave Edwards Scholarship is funded by generous gifts from friends and family of Dave Edwards at the time of his retirement. Dave was the long-time director of WUWM public radio.

The scholarship is given to a journalism major with demonstrated financial need, full-time status, a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0, and who is a first generation student. Preference is given to students with career aspirations in radio or broadcast journalism.

Applications are typically accepted in spring each year between February and April. Awards given in spring are for the following school year so students graduating that same spring or summer are not eligible. E.G. applications reviewed in Spring 2022 are for Fall 2022; students graduating in May or August 2022 are not eligible.
