The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) recently announced the recipients of the 2002-2003 Beverly and Erwin Goldfine Scholarship for Academic Excellence. This scholarship program was established in 1987 and has since awarded 71 scholarships to outstanding University of Minnesota Duluth students. To this day the program continues to help UMD challenge students to pursue academic excellence and to reward deserving students for their achievements.
Regent Emeritus Goldfine died on December 25, 2002 at the age of 79. Mr. Goldfine was a strong advocate of UMD throughout his career, serving on the University of Minnesota Board of Regents from 1975 to 1987. He helped to establish the UMD School of Medicine, and Goldfine Hall was named in his honor in 1989. Mr. Goldfine's legacy to the students will continue to live on in the Beverly and Erwin Goldfine Scholarship for Academic Excellence.
This year the Goldfine Scholarship has been awarded to 10 UMD students who will receive $1,500 each toward their tuition. Candidates for this scholarship must be full-time students in good academic standing and must have academic records that rank them in the top 5 percent of their class.
