The Stanley and Marjorie Wilke Memorial Fund provides area students with scholarships.
The Wilkes' son Wayne and his wife Tina established the scholarship in his parents' memory. Wayne and his parents are pictured to the right.
Two $1,000 scholarships are granted, one to a Washington High School graduating senior and another to a St. Francis Borgia High School graduating senior.
Applicants must complete a current Community of Washington Universal Scholarship Application Form through their school's guidance office.
Those interested in applying for the scholarship will prepare a presentation on local history. It may be in the form of a written essay of 500-1,000 words or a PowerPoint or video presentation of no longer than 15 minutes. Please submit your presentation to the Washington Historical Society Museum.
