Eligibility Through a gift from JMBT (Dr. Leslie Jaeger, Dr. Aftab Mufti, Dr. Baidar Bakht, and Dr. Gamil Tadros) and Vector Construction Group, a scholarship fund of $100,000 has been established at the University of Manitoba to support graduate engineering students. The fund has been augmented by the addition of the NSERC Synergy Award, which was won by the University of Manitoba in 2005 for the research partnership that exists between the ISIS Canada Research Network and the Vector Construction Group. Dr. Aftab Mufti, who received the NSERC cash award of $25, 000 on behalf of the University with discretionary powers over its allocation, determined that the best use of the funds would be to direct them towards the establishment of the JMBT - Vector Scholarship. The fund will provide an annual scholarship, valued at the available annual interest (approximately $5,000) for research in the field of Civionics Engineering. The scholarship will serve to stimulate, support, and encourage research in the structural health monitoring of intelligent civil structures by a graduate student at the University of Manitoba in departments associated with the Structural Health Monitoring Support Centre.

The scholarship will be awarded to a student who:
1) is enrolled in an MSc or PhD program in the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the University of Manitoba and has been in this program for not more than two years at the time of the scholarship offer;
2) has achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 over two full academic years prior to the session in which the scholarship is tenable; and
3) is conducting research in a field pertaining to monitoring of intelligent civil structures and civionics.

Applicants will be selected on the basis of academic excellence, commitment to their field of study, the quality and value of the research proposal, and their career objectives.
Value available annual interest on the fund (approximately $5,000)
