Eligibility With an initial gift of $25,000 in 2015, Lisa Lewis and Ian Robertson established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba. The purpose of the fund is to recognize, support and encourage eligible Indigenous students undertaking the MBA program in the I.H. Asper School of Business. Each year, beginning in 2017-2018, the available annual income from the fund will be used to offer one renewable scholarship to a graduate student who:

(1) is a member of the Aboriginal Business Education Partners (ABEP) program;

(2) is enrolled full-time or part-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, in the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program, delivered by the I.H. Asper School of Business;

(3) has achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.0 based on the previous 60 credit hours (or equivalent) of study;

(4) of the students that meet criteria (1) through (3), has achieved the highest grade point average based on the previous 60 credit hours (or equivalent) of study.

The scholarship is renewable for one year, providing the student continues to meet criteria (1) through (3) as outlined above. In the event that a recipient does not qualify for a renewal, a new recipient will be selected based on all four of the established criteria above.

The Vice-Provost (Graduate Education) and Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies (or designate) will ask the Dean of the I.H. Asper School of Business (or designate) to name the selection committee for this award, which will include the Director of the MBA program (or designate) and the Coordinator of the Aboriginal Business Education Partners program (or designate).
