Fund Story

The Gustav J. & Elma A. Banzhaf Memorial Scholarship Fund was started in 2008 to provide scholarships to graduates or students of New Prairie High School, New Carlisle, Indiana, or its successor organization, so they may pursue post secondary education.

The Banzhafs owned a farm in Rolling Prairie starting in the 1940s and were very active in their church and community.
