Through a bequest left to the Canadian Cancer Society (Manitoba division) by Mr. Sheu Lee, two annual scholarships of $3,000 each are to be made available to graduate students conducting research in the area of Oncology. The scholarships will be offered to two students who:
1) are enrolled as part-time or full-time students in the Faculty of Graduate Studies either in the Faculty of Nursing (either in the Master's program (Oncology focus) or the PhD program in Cancer Control), or in the Department of Psychology in the Faculty of Arts, or in the Faculty of Medicine;
2) have achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 (or equivalent) in the graduate program (if 12 credit hours or greater has been completed) or, in the last 60 credit hours of their undergraduate program (students entering from the Faculty of Medicine who graduated in good standing will be considered eligible);
3) are conducting or plan to conduct research in the area of Oncology that is consistent with the strategic priority areas set out in the National Strategy for Cancer Control; prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and end-of-life care. Preference will be given to students from rural Manitoba, which will be determined by the high school the student graduated from. Please indicate this in your letter of application.
The recipients of this award may hold it with any other award. The scholarship is not renewable but a recipient may reapply in each year of study.
The scholarship committee shall be named by the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies and will include two representatives of the Canadian Cancer Society (Manitoba division); one representing the psycho-social science and one representing the laboratory/clinical sciences.
