John W. Jung
This scholarship was created in honor of John W. Jung, class of 2001. John conceived and helped coordinate the now annual All-Campus Party (ACP), a weeklong celebration of UW-Madison that provides substance-free entertainment intended for tens of thousands of students, faculty and community members each year. Despite his dynamic leadership, ability to excel in and outside of school, and his commitment to serving others, John struggled with an ongoing battle against substance abuse and addiction. This memorial scholarship recognizes students who follow in John’s footsteps of leadership, excellence, and service, while raising awareness about the challenges of addiction. Please follow the link below to fill out the scholarship application form. The recipient will be recognized at Lake St. Bash on Friday, April 27th, 2018. Please apply by Monday, April 9th.
