Award Information
Hyman and Esther Dashevsky Bursary
VALUE: $625 (1) - 2013-2014 award value


Through a gift from Hyman and Esther Dashevsky, and with a contribution from the Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative, an endowment fund has been established at the University of Manitoba. Mr. Dashevsky graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering in 1955. He subsequently worked in the mechanical engineering field until his retirement. Five of Mr. and Mrs. Dashevsky’s six children have graduated from the University of Manitoba, thus the Dashevsky family feels a strong connection with the University.

Each year, a bursary valued at the available annual income from the fund shall be offered to a student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time in any year in the Faculty of Engineering, specifically in the Department of Mechanical Engineering;
(2) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 2.0;
(3) has demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form.

In the future, when earnings on the fund permit, the value or number of annual bursaries may be increased.

The selection committee shall be the Scholarships, Bursaries, and Awards Committee of the Faculty of Engineering.
