Application Details Applications must be made to the Faculty of Graduate Studies of your “home” university. This is the Canadian university from which you most recently graduated or are currently enrolled. You must be a graduate of a Canadian university when tenure of the scholarship begins.

A complete application consists of the following, each of which should be addressed to the “Mackenzie King Scholarships Competition” c/o the Faculty of Graduate Studies of your “home” university:

2. Three letters of reference from persons who have an intimate knowledge of your record and ability and are able to give a critical evaluation of your plans for graduate study. At least two of these testimonials must be from persons under whom you have taken your major work at university, or from senior colleagues with whom you have been associated in academic teaching or research. NOTE: Reference letters will be accepted in hard copy only. The letters must be signed and clearly indicate the contact information of the referee. The reference must arrive at your home university in an envelope that has been sealed and endorsed (signed over the back flap) by the referee. Due to the nature of this competition as an external award, we are unable to accept letters of reference via email.

For other institutions outside the University of Manitoba, we will print these items from your student file here in the Faculty of Graduate Studies and add them to your application when it is received.

All these items must be received by your home university by February 1st, 2018. If the University of Manitoba is your “home” university, please submit your completed application to:
