Bill Carlsen Undergraduate Scholarship in Atmospheric Science

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 from southeast Wisconsin 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 Kahl.

Deadline: April 1, 2021

To apply for this scholarship, you must complete your basic profile, the College of Letters and Science profile, and the scholarship application itself in the UWM Scholarship Portal. If you have previously created basic and College of Letters and Science profiles in the portal, you do not need to create new profiles, though you are welcome to update any of the information.
