Felix Wurmbach is the recipient of the first annual Michael S. Curwin Memorial Scholarship, which is awarded to a student attending Rutgers University School of Law.
The Curwin scholarship provides a paid summer internship for a law student interested in pursuing a career as a prosecutor. Wurmbach is serving an internship with the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office.
The family of the late Michael S. Curwin, who served in the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office for 29 years, established a scholarship in his memory at Rutgers Law, from which Mr. Curwin graduated in 1980.
At retirement from the GCPO as First Assistant Prosecutor in 2014, Curwin served longer than any assistant prosecutor in the history of the office. He passed away on October 31, 2015.
In 2016, Audrey Curwin, Michael’s wife of 23 years, retired from the GCPO as First Assistant Prosecutor after 27 years in the office.
Ron and Eileen Curwin, Michael’s parents, and his brothers Jay, Gary and Steven, established the scholarship.
