Award Information
Frederick L. Paulley Prize in Horticulture
To honour the memory of Frederick L. Paulley, his wife Daisy has established a fund at the University of Manitoba to encourage students in learning the art of horticulture. Mr. Paulley took his first courses in Horticulture and Agriculture by correspondence while serving with the Royal Canadian Navy on The Prince Robert from 1941 to 1945. Upon his retirement he began to develop his love and skill as a horticulturist and enrolled in several correspondence courses offered by the University of Guelph. A member of the St. James Horticulture Society, he served as President and Show Chairman for several years and won many ribbons for roses, gladioli,
and various vegetable entries.

The interest from the fund will support an annual prize which will be disbursed to a student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time in any year of study in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food
Sciences degree program;

(2) has achieved the highest standing (minimum cumulative G.P.A. of 3. 0*) in PLNT
2510 Fundamentals of Horticulture in the current academic year.

*Cumulative grade point average calculated at the end of the end of the term in which PLNT
2510 Fundamentals of Horticulture is offered.

In the case of a tie, the prize shall go to the student with the higher G.P.A. overall. Should
candidates still be tied, preference may be given to a student who is a Manitoba resident.
The selection committee shall be the Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences Awards Committee.
