Award Information
Geza and Trudi Racz Entrance Scholarship in Agricultural and Food Sciences
With a gift in 2015, Geza and Trudi Racz established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba to recognize and encourage undergraduate students studying in the field of Agriculture. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to the fund. Each year, beginning in 2017-2018, the available annual income from the fund will be used to offer one scholarship to an undergraduate student who:

(1) is Indigenous (Status, Non-Status, M├ętis, Inuit);

(2) is enrolled full-time (minimum 80% course load) in a degree program in the first year of study in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences;

(3) has achieved either:
(a) if entering directly from high school, a minimum 85% average on those courses considered for admission, or
(b) a minimum degree grade point average of 3.0.

If there are no candidates that meet all of the above criteria, the scholarship will be offered to a student who otherwise meets criteria (2) and (3).

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.
