Eligibility Walter and Elizabeth Rodewald have established an endowment fund of $50,000 for the Department of Chemistry at the University of Manitoba from which the first award will be offered in 2006. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. Dr. Rodewald began his career as a science teacher at Dominion City High School after receiving his B.Sc. (1950) and B.Ped. (1953) degrees from the University of Manitoba. He returned to the University three years later to further his education with an M.Sc. (1959) and a Ph.D. in Chemistry in 1965. While working on these degrees he joined the Department of Chemistry Faculty as a Lecturer. In 1963, he accepted the position of Head of the Chemistry Department at Brandon University. After ten years in this position, he embarked on a successful business career that continued until his retirement.
