The Goldstein Scholarship at the Centre for Talented Youth

Harvey Goldstein has extensive experience working in Southeast Asian business development, with a particular emphasis on Indonesia. Now based in Indonesia’s neighboring country, Singapore, Harvey Goldstein serves as Southeast Asia advisory board chair for the Centre for Talented Youth at Johns Hopkins University, where he and his wife have established the Goldstein Scholarship.

The Johns Hopkins University Centre for Talented Youth offers three-week programs of study in areas such as programming, mathematical modeling, and philosophy, and it emphasizes the need for the internationalization of young professionals. Each year, approximately 10,000 students enroll in summer programs at campuses spread throughout the United States and Hong Kong.

The Goldstein Scholarship grants recipients all funds necessary to participate in Centre for Talented Youth programs, including money for tuition, books, housing, and international travel expenses. The scholarship is designed for students who demonstrate both financial need and exceptional academic potential. Last year, six students from Singapore were granted the scholarship to attend the summer program at Pennsylvania’s Haverford College. Mr. & Mrs Goldstein plans to fund the scholarship for a total of five years and hope that it will continue after that initial term.
