Name:
Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Students Organization Awards (Second Year Degree)
Description:
The Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Students Organization (FASO) has invested $10,000 with The University of Manitoba for the purpose of generating funds for student awards. The Manitoba Scholarships and Bursaries Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. Should need arise, future FASO councils will have access to the principal. Up to 70 percent of the annual interest generated will be used to provide four awards as noted:

(1) a cash prize and a plaque to a student who has completed the first year in the degree course in Agricultural with a minimum sessional G.P.A. of 3.00 and a sessional record of participation in student activities of no less than 6 points;

(2) a cash prize and a plaque to a student who has completed second year in the degree course in Agricultural with a minimum sessional G.P.A. of 3.00 and a sessional record of participation in student activities of no less than 8 points;

(3) a cash prize and a plaque to a student who has completed third year in the degree course in Agriculture with a minimum sessional G.P.A. of 3.00 and a sessional record of participation in student activities of no less than 8 points;

(4) a cash prize and a plaque to a student who has completed first year in the diploma course in Agricultural with a minimum sessional G.P.A. of 3.00 and a sessional record of participation in student activities of no less than 4 points.

The cash prize for each award shall be of equal value based on the interest generated. In the event that in any year no student qualifies for one or more of these awards the monies shall be divided equally among the other recipients to a maximum of $250 per award. The third year award is not to be held concurrent with the Manitoba Institute of Agrologists Scholarship unless the only qualified candidate is also the Manitoba Institute Agrologists Scholarship recipient, otherwise these awards can be held with any other awards.

The selection committee for these awards will be the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Awards Committee along with the vice stick of FASO and the FASO student advisor.
