Peter Bye Family Scholarship Fund

The Peter Bye Family Scholarship helps medical students at the University of Minnesota Duluth and encourages the work of family-practice medical professionals in rural and small towns in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin. Applicants must be first-year medical students who are or were residents of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation’s service region (Aitkin, Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake and St. Louis Counties in Minnesota and Ashland, Bayfield, Douglas, Iron and Price Counties in Wisconsin). They must attend the University of Minnesota Medical School-Duluth, declare a family practice specialty, be in good academic standing and demonstrate financial need. Recipients must sign a statement of intent to work as physicians in the Community Foundation’s region for a minimum of five years. If a recipient fails to provide these services within 10 years of completion of residency training, he or she must repay all grants without interest. This scholarship was established by Peter and Caroline Bye in 1998 in memory of her father, an Iron Range physician.
