There is a new scholarship available for journalism students that honors a journalism graduate student from UW Oshkosh.
The Dave Engels Journalism Scholarship was established in 2010 by friends and fellow journalism alumni David ’78 and Terry ’78 Backmann. It acknowledges Engels’ passion and commitment to the field of newspaper reporting.
“The Dave Engels Journalism Scholarship will be awarded to deserving journalism students whose personal and professional qualities mirror the commitment to the field of reporting that Dave embodied,” said David Beckmann, ’78 UW Oshkosh Journalism graduate. “Our goal is to raise at least $10,000 to fully endow this scholarship. Thanks to generous donations from his family and friends and UW Oshkosh alumni and faculty, we have advanced slightly more than 75 percent toward meeting that goal. Once the fund is endowed, earnings from the fund will support this scholarship. Therefore, every dollar contributed to the fund will allowfor a greater annual scholarship award in Dave’s name.”
