Jack Ediger Bursary in Electrical Engineering
VALUE: $500 (1) - 2013-2014 award value


Mr. Jack Ediger [B.Sc. (E.E.)/48] has established the Jack and Mary Ediger Family Endowment Fund with a bequest to the Mennonite Foundation Canada. A portion of the earnings on the fund will be used to offer bursaries to support education in electrical engineering at the University of Manitoba. During the Second World War, Jack served overseas in 410 Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Force. After his discharge from the RCAF, he resumed his studies at the University of Manitoba, graduating with a degree in electrical engineering in 1948. Upon graduation, he accepted a position with Winnipeg Hydro, where he remained until his retirement in 1983.

One or more bursaries will be offered to undergraduate students who:
(1) are enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Engineering, in the Electrical Engineering degree program;
(2) have achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 2.0;
(3) have demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form.

The selection committee will have the discretion to determine the number and value of bursaries offered each year based on the available earnings from the fund. The earnings from the fund will be reported to the Financial Aid and Awards Office by the Mennonite Foundation Canada each year. Any allocated funds not awarded in a particular year will be carried forward and must be awarded in the following year.

The selection committee shall be named by the Director of Financial Aid and Awards.

The Director, with the written agreement of the Mennonite Foundation Canada, is authorized to recommend to the Senate Committee on Awards, for approval, amendments to the terms of the bursary as changing circumstances may require.
