Creating Immersive Experiences
Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.
There are a variety of scholarships available to attend classes at Stuhr Museum. We also have a higher education scholarship available to our Living History Apprentice.
These scholarships help provide tuition support for public schools and eligible students participating in the Heritage Activities for Today’s Students (H.A.T.S.) Classes at Stuhr Museum. Teachers, administrators and social workers may apply.
The Ella Epp Education Fund, established by Barbara and Peter Dessart, is named for Mrs. Dessart’s mother, Ella Epp of Henderson, NE.
Ella Epp taught for 35 years in Nebraska public schools—before her retirement in 1998. She served as president of the Nebraska Educational Media Association (NEMA) and president and board member of the Nebraska State Education Association (NSEA)—Capitol District.
Scholarship drawing prior to July 1st. Schools will be notified by mail no later than August 1st if they have won a matching scholarship.
These scholarships provide free tuition and transportation for deserving students to attend Stuhr Museum Summer Adventures.
This generous tribute was made possible by MacKenna Milhon’s loving family; grandparents Mike and Annetta Milhon, aunt and uncle Sunny and Kevin Forrest, and an employee nonprofit-match made by Union Pacific Railroad.
“MacKenna was just a red-headed freckle-faced girl who loved Stuhr Museum,” said, Mike Milhon.
MacKenna spent each summer vacation in Grand Island with her grandparents, and a highlight of those summers was the time she spent at Stuhr Museum, taking Summer Adventure classes, workshops and participation in the Living History Apprentice (LHA) Program.
The Alumni Scholarship in Memory of MacKenna Milhon will positively impact the lives of young people.
Living History Apprentice Program participants are eligible to apply for higher education scholarship.
