Eligibility An endowment fund has been established at the University of Manitoba in memory of Nancie J. Mauro (nee Tooley). Nancie Tooley was born and raised in Winnipeg. She attended the University of Manitoba, from which she obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1950 with a special focus in Music and Literature. Nancie was a dedicated student government member and continued to support her alma mater following graduation. In 1951, she married Arthur Mauro and together, they raised a close family of four children. Nancie always held fast to the belief that one has a duty to give back to society and she lived this motto to the fullest. She was an active volunteer with many organizations, from the Junior league in her younger years to her most recent commitment to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, to which she gave generously of her time by recording books for the blind. She was also a great support to her husband, Arthur V. Mauro, during his tenure as Chancellor of the University of Manitoba, a position he held from 1992 to 2001.

The fund shall support two scholarships of equal value and will be offered to students who:
  • are enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies (Masters or Ph.D. program) at the University of Manitoba, specifically either in the Faculty of Nursing or the Faculty of Medicine; or are in the Postgraduate Medical Education Program, either as residents or as fellows;
  • have achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 (or equivalent) in the graduate and undergraduate programs;
  • are conducting or have proposed to conduct research in the area of Oncology and have been judged by the selection committee as demonstrating the greatest promise (among the applicants) as researchers in this field

The recipients of this award may hold it with any other award.
