Eligibility The Foundation for Registered Nurses of Manitoba Inc, established in 1993 to support education for registered nurses, has established a fund at The University of Manitoba. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. The available annual income from the fund will support both scholarships and awards for registered nurses who are continuing studies in health-related flelds at a graduate level.

**This competition is for awards tenable in the 2017-2018 academic year. This means that to be eligible a student must intend to register as a graduate student as outlined below in both Fall 2017 and Winter 2018 terms of their respective graduate program. This is in addition to the other requirements for the award and scholarship below. Students who will be graduating in October 2017 or before that time would not be eligible for this 2017-2018 competition.**

Foundation for Registered Nurses of Manitoba Inc. Graduate Scholarship (#44753) Two scholarships, each valued at 15 percent of the available annual income (but see item 3.), will be offered each year to students who:

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

(2) have completed at least one full year of study at the graduate level and have achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 (as calculated via University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship guidelines);

(3) are conducting research in a health-related field;

(4) intend to maintain an active nursing registration following graduation.

The applicants will be asked to submit a two page summary of their graduate research and its relation to the health field, as well as a statement of their career goals following graduation. If an applicant is not enrolled in a Graduate Program in Nursing, they will be required to provide documentation of how their studies apply to nursing.


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;

(2) have achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0;

(3) are pursuing graduate education in health-related fields;

(4) intend to maintain an active nursing registration following graduation;

(5) have submitted a written application for the award (see details below).

Applicants for these awards will submit a letter which outlines why they elected to study in the chosen health relate field, what the relationship of the area of study is to the present employment held by the applicant or to future employment the applicant wishes to secure in a health related field, and how the applicant's objectives and goals reflect his/her personal interest in continuing education at the graduate level.


Item 3. Additional Scholarships and Awards In any given year, the Foundation for Registered Nurses of Manitoba Inc. may provide an additional contribution to increase the number of Scholarships and Awards offered that year. The Foundation will notify the Financial Aid and Awards Office by March 31st of each year to make known if available additional funds will be disbursed to students. In any given year that additional funds are available, a total of three Scholarships (#44753) valued at $3,000 each and a variable number of Awards (#44754), with a minimum value of $1,800 up to a maximum value of $2,250 each, will be offered to students who meet the selection criteria set out in the preceding paragraphs.

The selection committee will have the discretion to determine the number and value of Awards (#44754). Any candidate who applies for both the Award and Scholarship, if eligible, can only receive one or the other, but not both.

Value To be determined :: (For 2016-17, two(#44753) Scholarships were valued at $2,500 each. Six (#44754) Awards were valued at $1,950.00 each).
