Award Information
Name:
Marian Campbell Scholarship in Community Nutrition
Description:
In honour of Dr. Marian Campbell’s retirement from the Faculty of Human Ecology, Dr. Stan Cheung contributed $20,000 towards establishing an endowment fund in her name. Further donations have been made by friends and colleagues of Dr. Campbell. The purpose of the scholarship is to reward graduate students in the field of community nutrition. Each year, beginning in the 2004-2005 academic session, the available annual interest will be used to offer one scholarship to a graduate student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies as a Master’s or Ph.D student either in the Department of Human Nutritional Sciences, the Department of Community Health Sciences, or in a nutrition-related Interdisciplinary Ph.D program;
(2) has completed an undergraduate degree in Human Ecology, Agricultural and Food Sciences with a major in Human Nutritional Sciences, or a closely related field;
(3) has achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.5 based on the previous 60 credit hours (or equivalent) of undergraduate or graduate study;
(4) has demonstrated interest, commitment, and participation in the field of community nutrition.

Applicants will be required to submit an application including documentation that demonstrates their interest, commitment, and participation in the field of community nutrition (for example, through past and present course work, paid or volunteer work, future career goals, thesis topic, etc.).
The Vice-Provost (Graduate Education) and Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies (or designate) will ask the Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences to convene the selection committee for this award. The selection committee shall include a member of the Department of Human Nutritional Sciences who works in the area of community nutrition.

If there are no eligible applicants in any given year, the award will not be offered and the funds will be recapitalized as per the donor’s wishes.
Wherever possible, future modifications to the terms of reference for this award, if required, will be made in consultation with a faculty member in the Department of Human Nutritional Sciences who works in the area of community nutrition.
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.
