Foundation for Registered Nurses of Manitoba Inc. Graduate Award (#44754)

The remaining 70 percent of the available annual income shall be split equally six ways and used to support awards. There shall be six awards offered each year, each valued at no more than $2,250 (but see item 3.). In future years, these values may increase. If, in a given year, fewer than six eligible candidates are found, the 70% of available annual income from this fund shall be split equally among the eligible applicants, while maintaining the $2,250 maximum value for each individual award. Any remaining interest shall be invested with the capital of the fund. These awards will be offered to students who:

(1) are registered nurses and are enrolled full-time or part-time in any year of a graduate program at The University of Manitoba;
