UMD Announces 2003-2004
Goldfine Scholarship Recipients


UMD Presents Awards to Ten Students

The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) has announced the ten recipients of the 2003-2004 Beverly and Erwin Goldfine Scholarship for Academic Excellence. This scholarship program was established in 1987 and has since awarded 76 scholarships to outstanding UMD 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 formerly president of Manley Management Co. in Duluth, and was a strong advocate of UMD throughout his career, serving on the University of Minnesota Board of Regents from 1975 to 1987. He was a member and chair of the Minnesota Higher Education Coordinating Board, and was elected to the Duluth Hall of Fame in 1991. Mr. Goldfine 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.

Beverly Betten Goldfine has been active in the Duluth community for many years. She is past president of the Townview Improvement Corp., which built hundreds of units of low and moderate income housing for Duluth residents; recipient of the national Leading Volunteer awards from President Ford for providing low income housing; founder of the Duluth-Superior Community Foundation; and past president of the Temple Israel Sisterhood in Duluth. Ms. Goldfine is a champion of the disadvantaged and a voice for the voiceless; she is a true humanitarian. Her love and advocacy for education and the arts are well known throughout this community.

In May 1999, Beverly Betten Goldfine and Regent Emeritus Erwin L. Goldfine recieved degrees of doctor of laws, honoris causa from UMD.

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.
