The Heinlein Family established this fund in honor of their son who was pursuing communication arts as a major at the time of his tragic death. Their hope is that "another young man or a young woman from the East Coast with Chris's qualities ---joie de vivre, love of family and friends, creativity, humor, and kindness---will have the chance to attend the University of Wisconsin at Madison and graduate with a degree in Communication Arts with the help of the Christopher Neal Heinlein Memorial Scholarship Fund."
This scholarship fund provides one-time awards to sophomores, juniors, and seniors who have been admitted to the Communication Arts major. Applicants should demonstrate the following character traits: good-natured, kind, personable, a sense of humor, hard working, and an interest in the arts. Academic and artistic achievement as well as financial need are considered. Preference will be given to students who come from urban areas of the east coast. Past recipients may apply.
Scholarships marked with FAFSA required prior to awarding decisions in the list above require a completed Free Application For Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for awarding decisions. To learn more about applying for financial aid, please visit the Office of Student Financial Aid website.
