    More About the Scholarship Fund

    The Howard J. Brown Scholarship fund was established by the Foundation in 2019 to honor the late Howard J. Brown, former publisher of the Kenosha News and long-time member of the Kenosha Community Foundation Board of Directors.

    The one-year scholarships were established “for the benefit of students that meet criteria with regard to: need and scholastic or professional promise.”
