BioVision Seed Labs Scholarship
BioVision Seed Labs has established an annually funded scholarship to recognize students in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences. Each year, beginning in 2015-2016, one scholarship of $1,000 will be offered to an undergraduate student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time (minimum 80% course load) in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences;
(2) has completed a minimum of 24 credit hours toward their degree;
(3) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.5;
(4) has a farming background.

Candidates will be required to submit a letter (maximum 250 words) that describes how they meet criterion (4) and how they expect this background will affect their studies.
If in any given year, there is no candidate that meets all of the criteria, the scholarship may be offered to a student who otherwise meets criteria (1) to (3), with no application required.

The selection committee will be the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Awards Committee.
The donor will notify the Financial Aid and Awards Office by March 31 in any year this award is not to be offered.
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.

Established: Senate, January 6, 2016
