Award Information
Dairy Farmers of Manitoba Awards (Graduate)
The Dairy Farmers of Manitoba have provided a generous ($100,000) donation to establish awards for graduating students in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences, who have demonstrated an interest in dairy science. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. The available annual interest generated by the fund will be used to offer two prizes of equal value*; one to a student in the Animal Systems program and one to a student in the Food Science program, in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences who have:

1) achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.0 on the last 60 credit hours in the Animal Systems or Food Science Programs;

2) completed at least an 80% course load (24 credit hours) in their graduating year;

3) demonstrated an interest in dairy science by completing one or more of the following courses:
a) ANSC 4530 Ruminant Production Systems - Milk
b) FOOD 3160 Frozen Dairy Products
c) FOOD 3170 Cheese and Fermented Milk Products;

4) demonstrated leadership in their home community and on campus.

In any year that the available funds are not completely dispersed to suitable undergraduate candidates, the funds may be used as a post graduate top up award. The graduate student must be studying in the area of dairy science and have high academic achievement.

A complete review of the criteria will be performed every five years by the Dairy Farmers of Manitoba.

The selection committee for these awards will be the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Awards Committee in consultation with the Animal Systems and Food Science Program Chairs. *Two awards, each valued at $2500, will be offered in the 2006-2007 academic session.
