Fund Story

The Lawrence and Mabel Rudberg Scholarship was established in 1999 as a memorial to Lawrence and Mabel Rudberg. From Duluth and Two Harbors respectively, Dr. and Mrs. Rudberg both spent their professional lives teaching. Dr. Rudberg was a professor of economics and Mrs. Rudberg was an elementary school teacher. Following their retirements, the Rudbergs returned to Duluth where they enjoyed rich and fulfilling retirement years filled with travel and the mastering of new fields such as computer technology. They recognized they importance of higher education and had a strong commitment to provide financial assistance to students pursuing a college degree.

Funds Given from Fund

One, perhaps two scholarships (of about $5000/year), co-payable to the student and institution will be awarded each year. Generally, this annual award is divided into two installments--half for fall, half for spring--and is renewable for four years, assuming proper academic progress (2.5 GPA or greater) is maintained.
