Award Information
Name:
Anna Storgaard Scholarship
Description:
Anna Storgaard’s career was agronomy, as a specialist in forage crops. Her avocation was the nurture, support and encouragement of anyone who came into her life. Following formal education at the University of Manitoba (B.S.A., M.Sc.) and Pennsylvania State University (Ph.D.), Anna returned to the University of Manitoba to teach in the Plant Sciences department (and to also conduct research, advise farmers, offer counsel to students and faculty, and lend her skills to administrative tasks). Anna was a well-deserved recipient of the 1971 Olive B. Stanton Award as Teacher of the Year at the University of Manitoba, of the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Medal in 1977, of the Canadian Society of Agronomy Teaching Award in 1984, and was chosen for the Citizen Ambassador Program three times, including trips to Russia, to Australia/New Zealand, and to South America. She was also the well-deserved recipient of the affection, regard and loyalty of her friends, neighbours and family.

In memory of Dr. Storgaard, friends and graduates have established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba to support undergraduate students in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to the fund. The available annual income on the fund will be used to offer one scholarship to a student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time in the third year of study in the Bachelor of Science (Agriculture) degree program with a major in Agronomy;

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

(3) demonstrates with proper documentation, participation and leadership abilities through volunteer and extracurricular activities, including student government, athletic teams, associations, clubs, charities, religious organizations.

The activities itemized in criterion (3) represent an important part of the scholarship selection. Preference will be given to candidates who have shown strong commitment in at least one of the above categories (quality vs. quantity).

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