Charlotte Ulland Scholarship Fund for Girls


The Charlotte Ulland Scholarship Fund for Girls helps female graduates from public high schools on Lake Superior’s North Shore.

Applicants must be young women who will graduate from one of the following schools: Two Harbors High School, William Kelley High School or Cook County High School. They must have a GPA of at least 3.0 and plan to enroll in an accredited public college or university in Minnesota. They must be active participants or leaders in school and community activities and have some financial need. The award is renewable for four years, assuming academic progress (GPA of at least 2.5).

Charlotte Ulland was born in 1909 in Beaver Bay, one of five children of Norwegian immigrants. When Charlotte completed the final year of schooling available in Beaver Bay, she boarded with a family in Duluth so she could attend Central High School. She graduated and then earned a business degree from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.

Charlotte and her family wanted to celebrate young women lucky enough to live on the North Shore and to acknowledge higher education obstacles they sometimes face because of their remote location. Charlotte’s family and friends established the scholarship to celebrate her 100th birthday in 2009, six years before her death.
