Award Information
Name:
James Gordon Fletcher Graduate Fellowship in Agricultural and Food Sciences
Description:
Through a testamentary gift from James Gordon Fletcher, a graduate in Agricultural and Food Sciences at The University of Manitoba (B.S.A. / 25), a fund has been established at the University to support a graduate fellowship in Agricultural and Food Sciences.

The available annual income on the fund will support a fellowship which will be offered for the first time in the 2000-2001 academic session to a student who:

(1) is entering the Masters of Science program in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences and enrols full-time in the program;

(2) has an outstanding record of undergraduate academic achievement (minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 over the last 60 credit hours);

(3) demonstrates an interest in and potential for research.

This fellowship cannot be held with another award valued at or higher than the current value of the University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship at the Masters level. Applicants for the fellowship will be required to obtain application forms from the Office of the Dean in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences and will be required to submit the completed application forms on or before the designated application deadline date.

The fellowship recipient shall receive a renewal of the award upon achieving a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 in the first year of the Masters program. This fellowship may only be renewed once by the same individual. In years when a renewal award is made, no new award will be offered to a student entering the Masters program.

If, in the judgement of the selection committee, no deserving applicants come forward in a given year, the award will not be made in that year.

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