Award Information
Ian R. Seddon Memorial Award (Degree)
In memory of Dr. Ian R. Seddon, Business Development Specialist – Swine with Manitoba Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives (MAFRI) and co-chair of the Manitoba Swine Seminar, the Manitoba Swine Seminar Committee has established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to the fund. The fund will be used to offer two convocation prizes, with a minimum value of $1,000* each; one to a student in the diploma program and one to a student in a degree program.

Ian R. Seddon Memorial Award - Degree

One prize will be offered to an undergraduate student who:

(1) has carried at least a 60% course load in each of their last four academic terms;

(2) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.0;

(3) has achieved high standing in Monogastric Production Systems (currently numbered ANSC 4540).

Preference will be given to a student with a demonstrated interest in swine production based on the courses that he or she has completed at the University and who, in the opinion of the instructor, has shown particular interest in swine production.

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

*Until such time as the fund generates sufficient interest to fully support two prizes of $1,000 each, the Manitoba Swine Seminar Committee will provide an annual contribution to top up the interest generated by the endowment fund to offer both prizes.

The Board of Governors of the University of Manitoba has the right to modify the terms of this award if, because of changed conditions, it becomes necessary to do so. Such modification shall conform as closely as possible to the expressed intention of the donor in establishing the award.
