Bill Carlsen Memorial Scholarship

Bill Carlsen, WTMJ weathercaster from 1951–1972, was one of the United States’ first television weathercasters. A scholarship in his name, administered jointly by UWM and WTMJ, has been established in his memory. Atmospheric Science majors at UWM are eligible for the scholarship.

A committee consisting of the Chair of the UWM Mathematical Sciences Department, a representative from WTMJ-TV, and a UWM Atmospheric Sciences professor will review your application. The dollar value of the scholarship is dependent upon available funds. For more information, contact Professor Paul Roebber.

This scholarship is for the 2021-22 school year; students graduating in May 2021 or August 2021 are not eligible.

For optimal consideration, students should fill out these parts of the general scholarship application and make sure the most recent transcript is uploaded:

  • Co-curricular Activities
  • Community Service and Volunteer Work
  • Work Experience
  • Academic and Career Goals

You may edit your general application at any time prior to the deadline for the Bill Carlsen Memorial Scholarship.
