Name:
Rossnagel Scholarship for Academic Improvement
Description:
Dr. Brian Rossnagel and his wife, Laurel Rossnagel, have established a scholarship fund at the University of Manitoba to recognize a student in the final year of study in the Plant Biotechnology or Agronomy Programs in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences, who has achieved significant academic improvement over the course of undergraduate study at the University of Manitoba. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. Dr. Brian Rossnagel received his B.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Manitoba. He is a plant breeder who has devoted most of his career to developing new feed and industrial barley and oat cultivars through his work at the Crop Development Centre at the University of Saskatchewan.

In the years 2001 and 2002 (starting in 2003, the award will be valued at the available annual income from the fund), a scholarship valued at $500 will be awarded to an undergraduate student who:

(1) has completed a minimum of 84 credit hours in the Plant Biotechnology or Agronomy Programs in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences at the University of Manitoba;

(2) was registered as a full-time student (with a minimum 24 credit hours) in the third year of the Plant Biotechnology or Agronomy Programs;

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

(4) registers for a minimum of 18 credit hours in the fourth year of the Plant Biotechnology or Agronomy Programs;

(5) has demonstrated the most significant improvement in academic performance in the third year of study relative to second year (based on comparison of sessional grade point averages at the end of second year and at the end of third year).

If for any reason there is no suitable candidate for this scholarship, it will not be granted for that year. This scholarship may be divided between two recipients in the event of a tie.

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