The John and Maureen Galvin/Historic Madison, Inc. Scholarship is awarded to a high school senior graduating from a Jefferson County, Indiana high school pursuing a degree in historic preservation, architecture, American History or related field.

The scholarship award honors John Galvin, President Emeritus of HMI for his community and preservation related successes while recognizing his wife Maureen’s support for and encouragement of these worthy accomplishments in the hopes of inspiring future generations of preservationists, architects and historians to do likewise.
HMI, founded in 1960, is one of Indiana’s oldest and most prestigious non-profit historic preservation organizations. Galvin served as president from 1981 – 2010. Under his leadership HMI supported the preservation and improvement of Madison’s historic district so that it attained status as a National Historic Landmark District, the highest designation a historic property can receive.
Galvin also led a successful endowment campaign, oversaw the award winning preservation of the Schroeder Saddletree Factory, preserved one of America’s earliest remaining African Methodist Episcopal church buildings and added additional properties to the HMI portfolio of historic structures, including the home of Madison’s famous architect, Francis Costigan.
