Award Information
Name:
Monica and Jared Carlberg Bursary
Description:
Dr. and Mrs. Jared and Monica Carlberg established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba with a gift of $10,000 in 2016. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to the fund. The purpose of the award is to provide financial support to undergraduate students in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences. Each year, beginning in 2018-2019, the available annual income from the fund will be used to offer one award to an undergraduate student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time (minimum 60% course load) in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences;

(2) has achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.0 or, if admitted to the Faculty directly from high school and in their first year of studies, achieved an average of 85% on those courses used for admission;

(3) has graduated from a high school in rural Saskatchewan (as defined by the most recent Statistics Canada Census).

(4) has demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application.

If, in any given year, there are no candidates that meet criteria (3), the award may be offered to a student who has graduated from a high school in rural Manitoba (as defined by the most recent Statistics Canada Census). Second preference will be a student who has self-identified as a Canadian Indigenous (status, non-status, Metis, Inuit) Student.

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 establishing the award.
