Award Information
Name:
Daryl F. Kraft Undergraduate Student Paper Prize in Agricultural Policy
Description:
Friends, family, and colleagues of Dr. Daryl F. Kraft have established the Daryl F. Kraft
Memorial Endowment Fund at the University of Manitoba. The Manitoba Scholarship and
Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. Dr. Kraft, former Head of the Department of Agribusiness and Agricultural Economics, was noted for his ability to explain complex agricultural issues in a straightforward and objective way to students, the agricultural industry, and the general public. The fund will be used to support a number of initiatives that encourage clear and objective discussion of agricultural issues in Canada including, in addition to this Prize, the Daryl F. Kraft Graduate Fellowship (Award # 45386), and the Daryl F. Kraft Lecture Series on Agricultural Policy.

One prize valued at $1,000 will be offered to an undergraduate student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time (minimum 24 credit hours) in any year of study in the
Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences;

(2) submits the best agricultural policy paper prepared for an undergraduate course
in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences.

If, in the judgment of the selection committee, no appropriate paper is submitted in a given year, the award may not be offered.

Each year, the Advisory Committee will establish the criteria for the best paper and rules for
inviting, selecting, and recognizing the best paper. The Advisory Committee will recommend a
recipient to the selection committee, for approval.

The Advisory Committee will be named by the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences
Awards Committee and will include the Head of the Department of Agribusiness and Agricultural Economics (or designate) as Chair and a representative of the Kraft family.

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