Award Information
Cyril L. Anderson – Feed-Rite Graduate Fellowship in Animal Nutrition
From the gift of Mrs. Charlotte Anderson in memory of her husband, an awards fund has been established at The University of Manitoba. In 2015, the fund was made into an endowment. A graduate fellowship valued at 90% of the annual interest will be available in the Department of Animal Science to a Masters or Ph.D student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies in a Master’s or Ph.D. program offered by the Department of Animal Science;

(2) has achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.5 over the last 60 credit hours of completed university level study (or equivalent);

(3) will be conducting research specializing in Animal Nutrition.

Applicants who wish to be considered for this fellowship must complete an application form that is available from the Department of Animal Science.
The fellowship will potentially be renewable for one subsequent year (Master’s) or two subsequent years (Ph.D.). In order to be considered for the renewal, the previous year’s recipient must submit an application form, and the department must receive a copy of a satisfactory progress report from the student’s supervisor.

If, in the judgment of the selection committee, no student completes work of sufficient merit in any year to warrant receipt of this fellowship, the fellowship need not be awarded in that year.

This fellowship cannot be held with any other graduate award valued at $6,000 or more.

The Vice-Provost (Graduate Education) and Dean of Graduate Studies (or designate) will designate the Awards Committee of the Department of Animal Science to act as the selection committee for this award.

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.
