Award Information
Miriam Green Ellis Bursaries (Plant Science)
By the testamentary gift of Mrs. Miriam Green Ellis there have been established two funds to support bursaries at The University of Manitoba.

One half of the amount of the bequest shall be placed in a fund to be called the Miriam Green Ellis Fund in Animal Science. From this fund an amount not to exceed the interest (accrued and current) earned since the establishing of the fund will be made available to provide a bursary or bursaries.

The bursary or bursaries shall be awarded to graduate students who, within an acceptable range of scholarship, are:

(1) registered in, and proceeding with, a study program leading to a Master of Science or Doctor of Philosophy degree in Agricultural and Food Sciences within the Department of Animal Science; (40987)

(2) Eligible candidates must demonstrate financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form.

If for any reason a recipient of one of these bursaries does not register as required, either his bursary shall be awarded by reversion to the next qualified candidate or the value of the awards to other candidates shall be increased. If in any year a sufficient number of candidates for these bursaries is not available, the unexpected portion of the income yield for that year shall be added to the capital value of the fund and the amount available for distribution increased in subsequent years.

The selection committee shall be named by the Senate of The University of Manitoba and shall include the Dean of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences and the Head of the Department of Animal Science.
