Award Information
Name:
William W. Fetterman Scholarship
Description:
In accordance with the wishes of William W. Fetterman, who earned a Diploma in Agriculture in 1951, an endowment fund has been established at the University of Manitoba with an initial gift of $175,000 in 2010. The purpose of the fund is to provide a renewable scholarship for graduates of high schools in the Interlake, Lakeshore, and Evergreen School Divisions, who pursue post-secondary studies in the Faculty
of Agricultural and Food Sciences. One scholarship, valued at one-third of the available annual interest from the fund, will be offered to a student who:

(1) has graduated from a high-school in the Interlake School Division (Stonewall Collegiate, Teulon Collegiate, or Warren Collegiate), the Lakeshore School Division (Ashern Central School, Fisher Branch Collegiate, Inwood School, Lundar School), or the Evergreen School Division (Arborg Collegiate, Gimli High School, Riverton Collegiate);

(2) has completed a minimum of 24 credit hours and has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.0;

(3) in the next ensuing academic session, is enrolled full-time (minimum 24 credit hours) in the second year of study, in any baccalaureate degree program offered by the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences.

Preference will be given to graduates of a high school in the Interlake School Division.

The Scholarship, valued at one-third of the available annual interest from the fund, is renewable in each of the third and fourth years of study provided that the recipient:

(1) continues to be enrolled full-time (minimum 24 credit hours) in any baccalaureate degree program offered by the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences;

(2) has maintained a minimum degree grade point average of 3.0. In the event that a recipient does not qualify for continuation of the Scholarship, the University may offer
that scholarship to the next qualified student, in the same year of study, either as a renewable scholarship for a student in the third and fourth years of study (provided that the recipient meets the renewal criteria) or as a one-time scholarship for a student in the fourth year of study.

The selection committee will be the Awards Committee of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences.

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 in establishing the award.
