Award Information
Sydney L. Morantz Scholarship for Research In Poultry Science
A fund has been established at The University of Manitoba from a bequest by Mr. S.L. Morantz. The annual interest generated by this fund will be used to provide one or more scholarships each year for students pursuing graduate studies in Poultry Science. The scholarship(s) will be offered to one or more graduate student(s) who:

(1) are enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Graduate Studies as a Master’s or Ph.D. student in a program delivered by the Department of Animal Science;

(2) have achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.5 (or equivalent) on the last 60 credit hours (or equivalent);

(3) are conducting research in the area of poultry science.

If there are no eligible students who meet criteria (3), the selection committee may select a candidate studying another topic within the field of Animal Science. Students will be required to submit a statement (500 word maximum) on their research, as well as a current curriculum vitae. No student may receive this scholarship more than twice while enrolled in the M.Sc. program or more than four times while enrolled as a Ph.D. student.

The selection committee will have the discretion to determine the number and value of scholarships offered each year. The Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences will have the discretion to approve any spending not related to the criteria listed above from the annual interest and any unspent allocated interest, made on the recommendation of the selection committee.

The Vice-Provost (Graduate Education) and Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies will ask the Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences to name the selection 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.
