Eligibility On the occasion of the retirement of Dr. Bruce McDonald from the then Department of Foods and Nutrition in 1998, his family, friends and colleagues have established a fund in his name at the University of Manitoba. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. Dr. McDonald joined the Department of Foods and Nutrition at the University of Manitoba in 1968 as an Associate Professor. From 1977 to 1985, he was the Dean of the Faculty of Human Ecology. On his retirement, he was appointed Professor Emeritus in the Faculty of Human Ecology. Dr. McDonald was intimately involved in nutrition education and policy in Canada throughout his career. During the decade 1988 to 1998, he chaired Dietitians of Canada committees that developed guidelines for undergraduate education in dietetics in Canada in the 21st century. He was also highly dedicated to postgraduate education in nutrition and dietetics. Dr. McDonald is internationally recognized for his research on the nutritional properties of canola oil, in particular the effect of its fatty acid composition on cardiovascular risk factors.
The fund will support an award which will be offered to a student who:
  • is enrolled as a full-time graduate student in the Faculty of Graduate Studies who is being supervised by a member of the Department of Human Nutritional Sciences (the student may be in the M.Sc. program, the Interdepartmental Ph.D. in Food and Nutritional Sciences or in an Individual Interdisciplinary Program);
  • has a thesis research project with a focus on nutrition and human disease and which involves human research subjects; and
  • has achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 on the last 60 credit hours completed (to be calculated in the same manner as for the University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship).

  • The award may be held with a major award such as CIHR, NSERC, MHRC or UMGF. The award may be held by the same recipient once in an M.Sc. program and up to two time in a Ph.D. program, but no more than twice overall.
