Eligibility The University of Manitoba has acquired an extensive collection of papers, books, and maps belonging to Dr. Andrew Taylor, a great national civil engineer, geographer, and historian. Among the precious items acquired as part of this collection are an index of the Arctic Blue Books and the original Arctic Blue Books. The Arctic Blue Books are significant records of Arctic research conducted between 1818 and 1879. From a portion of the income from the publication of any part of this collection (the portion is set out in the agreement with the vendors, dated December 15, 1994) and using some of the proceeds from the sale of some duplicate and out-of-scope materials in the Taylor collection, a fund has been established to support a student award and a research grant for scholars wishing to utilize the collection in their research. In even-numbered years, beginning in a year when the fund generates at least $1000 in available annual income, one award shall be offered to a student who:
  • is enroled full- or part-time in a graduate program at the University of Manitoba;
  • has achieved a minimum 3.0 (or equivalent) based on the last 60 credit hours of study;
  • is conducting, or has proposed to conduct, research on some aspect of Northern Canada;
  • has presented a research proposal with the most value and promise in the area of Northern Canadian Studies, as deemed by the selection committee.
  • In a case where two graduate student proposals are deemed to be equally exceptional, the award will be offered to the student with the higher degree grade point average. In odd-numbered years, one award of $1,000 shall be offered to the scholar or student whose research project shows academic merit in the opinion of the Selection Committee and who:
  • employs the Andrew Taylor Collection for research purposes; or
  • employs the Andrew Taylor Collection to promote the collection; or
  • employs other materials relating to polar regions held in Archives & Special Collections for research; or
  • employs other materials relating to polar regions held in Archives & Special Collections to promote the collections.
  • The academic merit of each proposal will be determined by the selection committee. The committee will be responsible to rank and select the recipients. In a case where two proposals are deemed by the selection committee to be of equal academic merit, the proposals will be ranked in the above order. Proposals not deemed of acceptable merit will not be considered.
