Eligibility The family of Mary McCrorie (nee West) has established a fund in her memory which will provide a fellowship to be awarded each year to a graduate student at the University of Manitoba. The purpose of the fund is to support promising students who plan on making a career in research for the treatment or cure of Alzheimer disease. Beginning the 2015-2016 academic year, the revenue from the fund will be used to offer two fellowships. The first fellowship will be offered to a new recipient, and the second fellowship will be offered as a renewal to the previous year's recipient.

The first fellowship will be offered to a new applicant who:
  • is enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies in any PhD program at the University of Manitoba;
  • has achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.5 (or equivalent) based on the last 60 credit hours of study;
  • has an outstanding academic record and has demonstrated an aptitude for conducting research directly related to finding a treatment or cure for Alzheimer disease; and
  • is conducting research within the Province of Manitoba in the year in which the award is tenable.

The second fellowship will be offered to the previous year's recipient as a renewal. In order to be considered for the renewal, the previous year's recipient must submit a statement (maximum 500 words) to the Faculty of Graduate Studies Dean's office by the June 23rd deadline indicating how they continue to meet the qualifying criteria for this award. In the event that the previous year's recipient is not eligible for renewal, then only one new award should be offered, provided that a suitable candidate exists.
This fellowship is not available to students who have received other awards (for example, the Medical Research Council Studentship), that in total, accumulate to $25,000 or more.
