Dr. Joseph Warren & Capt. George C. & Teri Wildrick Scholarship
The “Dr. Joseph Warren & Capt. George C. & Teri Wildrick Scholarship” was established by the Dr. Joseph Warren Foundation (DJWF) to help honor the legacy of Dr. Joseph Warren & Capt. George C. Wildrick. Capt. Wildrick was the fifth-great grandson of Dr. Joseph Warren, a physician & hero of the Revolutionary War who was killed at the Battle of Bunker Hill in Charlestown in 1775.
Capt. Wildrick was a West Point graduate who served his country with honor, following in the footsteps of generations of Dr. Joseph Warren descendants. A core belief championed & supported by Capt. & Mrs. Wildrick is that every student should have access to higher education.
We are pleased to offer two (2) scholarships each in the amount of $500 for a new student matriculated into a History/Government degree program. The scholarship is non-renewable. The applications will be evaluated on the following criteria.
