Dairy Farmers of Manitoba Bursary
The Dairy Farmers of Manitoba have established a fund at the University, with additional contributions from the Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative, to provide a bursary for students in the School of Agriculture or the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences. Initially, the bursary will be valued at $1000. The Dairy Farmers of Manitoba shall provide $1000 on an annual basis until the fund is able to sustain an award of this size on its own. In order to build the fund, the Dairy Farmers of Manitoba will make gifts to the fund above and beyond the annual award of $1000. Any gift beyond $1000 a year (which is to be spent on the bursary in that given year) shall be matched by the Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative. Once the fund is generating interest beyond $1000, the number of bursaries may be increased by the selection committee, with one bursary always maintaining a value of at least $1000.

This bursary shall be offered to an undergraduate student who:

(1) has completed at least 30 credit hours at the University of Manitoba, either as a full-time or a part-time student, in the School of Agriculture (diploma program), Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences (degree program) or in University 1;

(2) has achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5;

(3) is enrolled as a full- or part-time undergraduate student in the School of Agriculture or the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences;

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