Eligibility Through a testamentary gift from Margaret Mary Burns, a fund has been established at The University of Manitoba to provide support to graduate students in Social Work at the University. Ms. Burns was born and raised in Winnipeg and received her undergraduate education from The University of Manitoba, before the Social Work program was established here. She studied Social Work at Columbia University in New York and went on to practice and teach Social Work in the United States, Canada, and abroad. She requested that her gift to the University establish an endowment to be used for the “betterment of the Faculty”.
From time to time, portions of the available income from the fund will be utilised, at the discretion of the Dean of the Faculty of Social work, toward library acquisitions for the Faculty. The remainder of the available annual income from the fund (in years when library acquisitions are not funded by the income, the total annual income) is spilt 1/3 for bursary support and 2/3 for scholarship support. Within each of these two categories, funds are disbursed equally between the priority list students (i.e., Aboriginal students, students with disabilities, immigrants, refugees, and visible minorities) and all other students.
This fund shall be awarded to students who:
  • are enrolled part-time or full-time in the pre-MSW or MSW program;
  • have achieved satisfactory academic standing (i.e., have met the academic continuation requirements of the program);
  • have outlined their financial need by way of a letter of request for funding submitted to the Graduate Program Committee.

  • Applications for bursary assistance are considered throughout the year and bursaries are awarded when needed, rather than at only one poin in the year when all other bursaries are awarded. Funds allocated for bursary assistance are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis each fiscal year.
    The scholarships supported by this fund are awarded to graduate students who:
  • are enrolled part-time or full-time in the first year of the MSW of Ph.D. program in Social Work
  • were admitted to the current program with a minimum grade point average of 3.0

  • Preference will be given, firstly, to students who do not hold other scholarships concurrently and, secondly, to those who were admitted with the highest grade point average.
