Award Information
Dr. Cameron Jay Memorial Scholarship
In memory of S.C. Jay, Professor (1961-1991), Head (1981-1987), and Professor Emeritus (1991-2008) of the Department of Entomology, his colleagues and friends have established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to the fund. The available annual interest from the fund will be used to offer one scholarship, with a minimum value of $500, to a graduate student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, in either the M.Sc. or Ph.D. in Entomology;

(2) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.5 (or equivalent) based on the last 60 credit hours of study;

(3) is conducting thesis research in the area of apiculture, pollination biology or biology of social insects;

(4) has demonstrated a high level of research potential.

Candidates will be required to submit an application that will consist of a description of their research project (maximum 500 words), a current academic transcript(s), and two academic letters of reference from professors at a post-secondary institution. The Scholarship is not automatically renewable but previous recipients may reapply. Applications will be solicited in December, with a submission deadline in January. The recipients will be announced by March.
Recipients may hold the Dr. S. Cameron Jay Memorial Scholarship concurrently with any other awards, consistent with policies in the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

In a year when no worthy candidate is identified, any unspent interest will be capitalized with the capital of the fund.

The selection committee will be named by the Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies (or designate). A faculty member serving as an academic supervisor of one or more of the candidates for the Scholarship shall not be named to serve on the selection committee.

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.

Please submit the attached application form (found below in "supporting files") along with all required documents.
