Award Information
W.O.S. Meredith Fellowship for Barley Research
The Barley Group at the Grain Research Laboratory (Canadian Grain Commission) has established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba. Proceeds to establish the fund came from revenue generated by the Canadian Barley Symposium ‘99, as well as from a contribution made by the Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative. This fund shall support a fellowship to honour Dr. W.O.S. Meredith, a highly respected barley scientist who worked at the Grain Research Laboratory and was an Adjunct Professor at the University of Manitoba. The fellowship is intended to extend research in barley science by encouraging and providing support to a student who is conducting graduate research in this field.

Each year, a fellowship valued at the available annual income from the fund shall be offered to a graduate student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time in an M.Sc. or Ph.D. program at the University of Manitoba, in any of the following Departments: Food Science, Plant Science, or Animal Science;

(2) has achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 on all courses completed to date;

(3) is conducting or has proposed to conduct research in barley science;

(4) has demonstrated great aptitude and potential in this research field.

Applicants for this fellowship will demonstrate their aptitude and potential in the barley science research field by way of a two-page summary of their current/proposed research and how it fits into the area of barley science.
