Award Information
Rebecca and Jacob Miasnik Memorial Bursary
In honour and memory of Rebecca and Jacob Miasnik, who were among the pioneers who farmed an area north of Winnipeg in the early decades of the 20th century, an endowment fund has been established at the University of Manitoba by their grandchildren. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. The award is also meant to honour others like them who endured many hardships in order to maintain the land and were interested in finding more productive methods of working with the land and in experimenting with alternate types of crops. Beginning in 2007, a bursary valued at the available annual interest, will be offered to a degree student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time in the third or fourth year of study in the agronomy program in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences at the University of Manitoba;

(2) has achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5;

(3) has demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form.

Preference will be given to a student who demonstrates an interest in ecologically sustainable production systems.

The selection committee shall be the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Awards Committee.
