Lara Onalee Nagler Memorial Scholarship ‘Lara’s Legacy’
In memory of Lara Nagler, an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba has been set up by her family and friends. This scholarship is intended to reward and encourage students in the Human Nutritional Sciences program in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences who have demonstrated a strong commitment to volunteerism, community and family.

Each year, the available annual interest from the fund will be used to offer two scholarships of equal value to undergraduate students who:

(1) are enrolled full-time (minimum 80% course load) and have completed one full year of study in the Bachelor of Science (Human Nutritional Sciences) degree program, offered by the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences at the University of Manitoba;
(2) have achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.5;
(3) have demonstrated a strong commitment to volunteerism, community, and family in one of the following ways:
(a) through a two-page letter (maximum 500 words) of application outlining involvement in these areas; or
(b) through a written nomination (maximum 500 words) of an eligible student by a faculty member, or a practicum or work supervisor.

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

Biographical Information:
Lara was born and educated in Winnipeg. She received her degree in Human Ecology, in Foods and Nutrition, in 1997. Lara’s love and loyalty to family and friends were boundless, but her sense of adventure drew her to the west coast where she died accidentally in April 1999. Throughout her short life, Lara showed great empathy and commitment to people in need and to all God’s creatures. She quietly became involved when she felt she could help. This included working with non-profit groups such as McBeth House Centre for Seniors and the Manitoba Schizophrenia Society. After graduating, a goal she did not have time to achieve was to work with a community-based or self-help program. This award, ‘Lara’s Legacy’, fosters the well-being of those for whom she cared.
