Alumnus Gift Will Fund $50,000 in ME Scholarships

Faustin Prinz, who died in 1995, has bequeathed monies to the UW Foundation that will generate about $50,000 yearly for the UW Mechanical Engineering Department for undergraduate scholarships. Prinz was a member of the ME class of 1937. According to Bonnie Bruce of the foundation, Prinz received a scholarship during his undergraduate studies that allowed him to complete his degree during the Great Depression. In gratitude, he directed that the income from this trust should fund scholarships for needy ME students, and that any remaining money should be used for such things as teaching equipment. Prinz forged his own career in banking, real estate, and the Juneau Stamping Company.
