Eligibility To commemorate 1994, the United Nations International Year of the Family, and the major participation of Manitoba citizens, the Premier's Family Year-94 Volunteer Council and the Government of Manitoba have established a fund of $50,000 including matching funds provided by The University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship Matching Funds Program.

The Manitoba Family Year 1994 Legacy Scholarship will be awarded to a graduate student studying in the Department of Family Social Sciences at The University of Manitoba. The objective of the scholarship is to support and encourage research on the family and to recognize academic excellence.

At the discretion of the selection committee, the award may be divided between two equally qualified candidates. The decision will typically be made in the fall, for students registering full-time in the current year. The scholarship may not be held concurrently with a University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship.

The scholarship shall be awarded annually to a student(s) who:
  • is registered full-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, in a Master's program in the Department of Community Health Sciences (As of July 1, 2015 the Department of Family Social Sciences, Faculty of Human Ecology merged with the Department of Community Health Sciences, Max Rady College of Medicine, Rady Faculty of Health Sciences);
  • has completed at least 9 credit hours in the program;
  • has a minimum grade point average of 3.5 based on the last 60 credit hours (or equivalent) of study.

  • Since the participation in and impetus for the International Year of the Family was initiated by home economists, preference will be given to candidates who are graduates from home economics/human ecology or related programs and who plan to publish research findings related to family issues.
    Value The scholarship shall be valued at up to 70% of the annual interest on this fund.
