In years where funds are available, the Faculty of Graduate Studies will offer scholarships to full-time graduate students at the University of Manitoba. Scholarships will be offered to meritorious graduate students who demonstrate significant academic achievement, research ability, and scholarly potential. Not all applicants who meet the minimum eligibility requirements are guaranteed to receive a scholarship. The Faculty of Graduate Studies will confirm the availability of funds for this scholarship annually.
For the Fall 2021 term, scholarships with a minimum value of $2,500 will be offered to graduate students who:
(1) are enrolled full-time in a thesis-based program in the Faculty of Graduate Studies within the first two years of a Masterís program or the first four years of a Ph.D. program;
(2) have achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.0 based on the the last 60 credit hours (or equivalent) of study;
(3) have, at the time of application, defended their thesis proposal; and
(4) are in good standing with the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
The selection committee will determine the number and value of awards offered each year based on the funds available. In years when funds are available, multiple competitions may be held. The Faculty of Graduate Studies will set the deadline(s) each year. No awards will be offered in years when no funding is available.
The selection committee will be named by the Vice-Provost (Graduate Education) and Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies (or designate).
