The Marshutz Endowed Journalism fund, Wilkinson College of Humanities and Social Sciences, awards a scholarship each academic year to a matriculated student majoring in English with a journalism emphasis or a journalism minor who displays a growing talent and the potential to succeed in the course of study while also demonstrating a need for additional funds.
