Award Information
Anne Christine Thorne (Poczyniak) Memorial Bursary
In memory of Anne Christine Thome (Poczyniak), her friends and family have established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba. Anne never backed down from a challenge and was always the first to lend a helping hand to those in need. In keeping with her kind and thoughtful nature, the purpose of the bursary is to provide support to Human Nutritional Sciences undergraduate students in financial need.

Each year, beginning in 2016-2017, the available annual income from the fund will be used to offer one bursary to an undergraduate student who:

(I) is enrolled full-time (minimum 60% course load) in the Human Nutritional Sciences program in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences;
(2) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 2.5;
(3) has demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form.

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.
