Eligibility One scholarship is offered annually to an applicant who has graduated from The University of Manitoba or from one of its affiliated colleges and who will be pursuing a Master's or Doctoral program. The scholarship is renewable for one additional year following the successful completion of the recipient's first year of graduate studies. The purpose of the fund is to reward the academic achievements of students who have completed an undergraduate degree from the University of Manitoba and have chosen to pursue graduate studies outside of the University of Manitoba. Each year, half of the available annual income from the fund will be used to offer one scholarship to the individual who:

(1) has graduated from any undergraduate program offered within the Faculty of Science or the Faculty of Arts at the University of Manitoba within the past five years at the time of the application's submission;

(2) has achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.5 based on the last 60 credit hours of completed university-level study (or equivalent);

(3) has been accepted to, and intends to pursue studies within the next twelve months in any graduate program which leads to a Master's or Doctoral degree that is one year or more in duration at an accredited university in Europe, the United States of America, or Canada (not including the University of Manitoba or any of its affiliated colleges);

(4) has demonstrated outstanding academic achievement, leadership skills, and involvement in extra-curricular activities throughout the duration of their undergraduate degree.

In the event that two or more applicants are equally qualified for the scholarship, preference in selection will be given to the applicant who has taken courses in Philosophy, Psychology, and/or History, or will be pursuing graduate studies in one or more of these subjects.

This portion of the scholarship will be provided to the new recipient in the form of a mailed cheque once the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the University of Manitoba receives official confirmation that the recipient has registered at the post-secondary institution at which they will be pursuing graduate studies.

In the event that the selected new recipient does not register for the graduate program as indicated in their initial application, the scholarship will be provided to the next qualified candidate in order of merit, if any.

In the event that there are no successful applicants in any given year, the portion of the income from the fund dedicated to the new recipient will be returned to the capital of the fund.
