Eligibility A fund has been established at The University of Manitoba as a memorial tribute to Dr. Sig Helgason (1913-92) to provide awards for students in the Department of Plant Science. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. Dr. Helgason joined the Department of Plant Science in 1947 as a plant breeder, serving as Head from 1975 to 1978, when he retired. He was named Professor Emeritus in 1980 and maintained an ongoing involvement in his research programme, graduate student committees, and departmental affairs until 1984. His outstanding career accomplishments include the development of corn inbreds and hybrids and the release of several barley varieties, including the six-row malting variety, Argyle.
The fund will be used to offer one or more awards, with a maximum value to be set by the Head of the Department of Plant Science, on the recommendation of the Plant Science Graduate Studies Committee. The Award will be offered to graduate students who:
