|Medical Health Sciences
|As a memorial to their father and grandfather, members of the Drewry family have established a fund to provide a major research award for Ph.D. students in the Faculty of Medicine. Awards from this fund shall be governed by the following regulations:
An annual award valued at the available annual income from the fund will be presented, for the best overall research, to one of the recipients of the following awards in five subject areas: (a) ABI Biotechnology Inc. Award for Molecular Biology (b) Health Sciences Centre Research Foundation Inc. Awards of Neurobiology (c) Manitoba Lung Association Award for Pulmonary Biology (d) Merck Frosst Canada Inc. Award for Cell Biology (e) St. Boniface Hospital Research Foundation Inc. Award for Cardiovascular Biology
The recipient of this award is normally expected to receive the award in person, as well as give a Faculty-wide lecture on his or her research. (Travel costs of up to $1,000 incurred by the recipient, should he or she have already left the University, shall be borne by the budget of the Student Research Awards Day.)
The award shall be based primarily on the excellence of research. Documentation considered relevant by the awards committee shall include the following: a covering letter from the student summarizing his or her research accomplishments, a summary or copy of the thesis (if available), reprints of publications (published or manuscripts in press), a curriculum vitae of the student, and letters of support from the student's advisor and any other person knowledgeable of the student's research. These letters shall clearly outline the merits of the student's research and also briefly describe other merits of the student. The awards committee may also seek further information (e.g., through personal interviews).
The submission of documents for consideration by the awards committee shall be made by the student in consultation with the student's advisor. The submission shall be accompanied by the indication of the category in which the student wishes to complete and, if relevant, a justification of the category chosen. A complete submission will include two copies of all documentation and an additional nine copies of the curriculum vitae and all letters.
The awards committee shall not disqualify a given candidate because the topic of his or her research does not fit well into a given subject area. The submission shall be considered on its merits only.
The deadline for submissions to the chair of the awards committee shall be three months prior to the Annual Awards Day or as decided by the Faculty Committee for Graduate Studies.
The Office of the Associate Dean (Research and Graduate Studies) shall be responsible for announcing annually the exact dates of eligibility and submission deadlines. It shall also receive, on behalf of the committee Chairs, all applications for consideration by the awards committee.
Applications by a student who has already received a major award shall be solely on the basis of new research conducted after the previous award.
