Alumni Association Scholarship Awarded
The new UMD Alumni Association Scholarship is the first scholarship designed to exclusively benefit the children and grandchildren of UMD alumni. It recognizes student activities in leadership and community service. It is intended to provide the selected UMD sophomores, juniors or seniors outreach opportunities plus financial support. Recipients will become members of the UMD Alumni Board and will have networking opportunities with alumni, faculty and administration. They will be invited to chair committees and participate in alumni activities.
In 2006, UMD alumnus Allen C. Willman ’50, ’72, ’73, a retired teacher and administrator in area schools, proposed the alumni scholarship. The Board embraced his idea with enthusiasm. “This scholarship provides an opportunity to give back to our university,” said Willman. “All of us are in a better place because of UMD.”
The new UMD Alumni Association Scholarship’s award payout will
be matched by UMD’s Reaching Higher Scholarship Initiative. To help
support students of UMD alumni, contact Patty DeLano at 218-726-8829,
