Award Information
Canadian Dairy Commission Scholarship
The Canadian Dairy Commission has provided a contribution of $200,000 to the University of Manitoba to create the Canadian Dairy Commission Scholarship Program. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to the fund. Beginning in the fall of 2006, this program will provide graduate scholarships to students who are Canadian citizens and permanent residents (i.e., landed immigrants) and who:

(1) are enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the University of Manitoba in the M.Sc. program;

(2) are conducting research in the areas of agricultural economics and policy or food science, and whose thesis project has application to the dairy industry.

Interested candidates will be required to complete an application form and submit an outline of their thesis proposal.

Full-time M.Sc. students will be eligible to receive $20,000 per year for a maximum of one and a half years. This will amount to $30,000 over 18 months, as long as the student continues in their program and makes satisfactory progress.

Recipients will be eligible for a one-time maximum additional sum of $5,000 for travel costs to further their education or research program on the advice of their senior or thesis advisor.

The Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Awards committee will have discretion over the final selection of the scholarship recipients and the number of awards offered annually, based on the funding available (capital and annual allocation of interest) and previous commitments made. The contribution made by the Canadian Dairy Commission has been matched equally by the Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative. Both capital and annual interest generated will be used to fund the scholarships.

ONE award is available to an M.Sc. student. Award funding will begin in Winter 2016, and must be used no later than July 30, 2017.

*Winners must be eligible to receive all funds by July 31, 2017, or funds will be forfeited.
