Eligibility The Ernst and Ingrid Bock Graduate Award fund has been established at The University of Manitoba as a memorial through donations made by colleagues, friends and family of the Bocks who died in 1994. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative and the Edward Eric Hildebrand and Anne Palmer Hildebrand Memorial Scholarship Fund have made contributions to this fund. Ernst Bock was born in Kharkov, Ukraine in 1929 and, after several years in Germany, immigrated to Canada in 1948. He obtained his B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees at the University of Manitoba and joined the Chemistry Department as a lecturer in 1958. He was promoted to Professor in 1972, a position he held until his death in 1994. He published approximately 90 scientific papers, mainly in the area of dipole moments, magnetic resonance, and liquid crystals. Ingrid (Schroeder) Bock was born in 1938 in Winnipeg. She received a B.A. from the University of Manitoba in 1959 and taught French at the University of Winnipeg Collegiate Division for four years. Her employment at the University of Manitoba started in 1980 and she was an Administrative Assistant in the Department of Physics at the time of her death in 1994.
The purpose of this memorial award is to support exceptional graduate students in the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Physics and Astronomy. The fund will be split equally to provide for awards in Chemistry and in Physics and Astronomy. The fund will be offered to students in each department who:
  • are registered full-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies in either the Department of Chemistry or the Department of Physics and Astronomy;
  • have achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.5 (or equivalent) over (i) the last two regular academic sessions completed, if they are students who are in their first two years of graduate studies or (ii) all graduate level sessions, if they are students who are beyond the first two years of graduate studies;
  • have demonstrated exceptional research ability at either the undergraduate level or the graduate level.

  • Research ability may be determined by research publications or presentations at local, national, or international scientific conferences. Chemistry students in the first year of graduate studies will be evaluated based on CHEM 4710 - Research Project in Chemistry or Biochemistry or an equivalent course.
    Recipients of this award may hold it more than once but previous recipients must re-apply each year to be considered and will be in equal competition with other applicants.
    Value available annual income, amount and number of awards given in any year shall be determined by the Scholarships Committee in each department
