Award Information
A.G. Robinson Memorial Scholarship
In memory of A.G. Robinson, Professor (1953-1981), Head (1975-1981) and Professor Emeritus (1982-1992) of the Department of Entomology, his colleagues and friends have established a scholarship fund at the University of Manitoba. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. From this fund, an annual scholarship, valued at the available annual interest earned (initially $200), will be made to a graduate student who:

(1) is enrolled in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, in a graduate degree program delivered by the Department of Entomology;

(2) has achieved strong academic standing in the overall program (minimum AGPA of 3.5 in his or her current program);

(3) has not previously received the award in his or her current program;

(4) among those candidates who meet criteria (1) through (3), has written the best literature review essay in one of the required courses ENTM 7150 (M. Sc. students) or ENTM 7220 (Ph.D. students).

The award selection process for this scholarship will occur in January each year. The committee of course instructors and the Chair of the Entomology graduate program will review thesis literature review essays submitted during the previous year (January 1 through December 31).

If no student is considered qualified for the scholarship, all of the interest will be returned to the principal.

The selection shall be made by the Awards Committee of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences, on the recommendation of the Chair of the Entomology Graduate Program.
