Beverly Broughton Bajus (B.Sc. H.Ec., '59) has established a trust fund at the University of Manitoba to provide an annual scholarship to a student in Human Nutritional Sciences. This fund commemorates the life and achievements of Ms. Bajus' mother, Helen Fowler Broughton.

Each year, the available annual interest from the fund will be used to offer one scholarship to an undergraduate student who:

(5) has demonstrated engagement in outreach or volunteerism directed to youth.

To demonstrate how they meet criterion (5), applicants will be required to submit a one-page letter (maximum 250 words) to the awards committee.

If there is no eligible applicant who meets all criteria, the scholarship can be offered to the student who meets criteria: (1), (2), (4), and (5), or to a student in a food-related option who is pursuing a minor in the I.H. Asper School of Business.

The selection committee will be the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Awards Committee.
