About the Hubert and Constance Wilhelm Geography Scholarship

The Hubert and Constance Wilhelm Scholarship was endowed by their son, David Wilhelm, as well as a number of other benefactors. Hugh Wilhelm was the first chair of the Geography Department when it separated from Geology in the late 1960s. Wilhelm was a cultural geographer who studied cultural landscapes and settlement landscapes in particular. He was a leading specialist in the settlement of the rural Midwest. He inspired students at Ohio University for over 30 years, and he won the prestigious “University Professor” award twice. His wife, Connie, was an instrumental factor in Hugh’s success.

Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.35 and have a minimum of 30 hours attempted. The scholarship is typically awarded to a student specializing in cultural geography.
