Miles McMillin Memorial Scholarship

The Miles McMillin Memorial Fund was established December 31, 1982, with gifts from friends, colleagues, corporations and foundations in memory of Miles McMillin, former editor and publisher of The Capital Times.

FAFSA required prior to awarding decisions. Preference in selection is given to students from northern, less-populated areas of Wisconsin.

About the process: Students do not apply for individual scholarships with the School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Students fill out one application and the scholarship committee matches students to awards. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, academics, study area and involvement.
