In October 2014 an annual scholarship, in the amount of $25,000, has been established in fond memory of Mrs. Rosalind Goodman by the Directorship of the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Institute. This was made possible through funds generously donated by the family, friends and colleagues of Rosalind and Morris Goodman to celebrate the life and work of Rosalind Goodman. The Goodman family remains the strongest advocate for basic cancer research and a generous benefactor of the Cancer Research Institute.

The studentship, which will be known as the Rosalind Goodman Commemorative Scholarship, serves to recognize the exceptional research and community work of a graduate student in the final years of their Ph.D. studies at the Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Institute. 

In addition to outstanding research excellence in the cancer field and in recognition of Rosalind Goodman’s life-long and tireless philanthropic spirit, the recipient of this award will be expected to demonstrate strong and continuous community involvement during his/her tenure at the Goodman Cancer Institute.
