The Charles and Esther Golub Scholarship

Criteria: (Amount Equal to One Full Annual Tuition Award) The Charles and Esther Golub Endowed Scholarship will be awarded to one full-time male student majoring in Business Administration or Economics who has demonstrated a high degree of motivation and responsibility while attending Worcester State University.

When the late Esther Golub retired in 2001 after 21 years as secretary in the Department of Business Administration and Economics, she said, “The pleasure and satisfaction that these years have brought me will be remembered with tremendous joy and happiness.” Esther’s concern for helping students attain their goals was the hallmark of her tenure at WSU.

Charles and Esther Golub were a great team! They were married for sixty-one years. They shared feelings for young people, and always recognized the need to help others. What better way than the creation of this scholarship!

Charlie served our country in WWII. He was awarded the Purple Heart twice for being wounded in action in Italy and France. At home in Worcester, Esther kept busy running Charlie’s business and raising their son. Charlie and his brother owned and managed the Green Street Market on Green Street for eighty years. This popular neighborhood market was a well-known and beloved landmark. Everyone who traded there was on a first-name basis. People were intimate and friendly. Charlie will always be remembered for his singing and storytelling. He had a great philosophy of Life – “La Vie En Rose” – “Life is Beautiful When You Are Loved.”

The Charles and Esther Golub Scholarship will honor Charlie’s memory and Esther’s warm, deep affection and love for those many wonderful students.
