VALUE: $2200 (1) - 2013-2014 award value
TERMS & CRITERIA
Ms. Ollie Landega has established a fund of $20,000 at the University of Manitoba, with a contribution from the Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative, in honour of her nephew, Curtis A. Landega. At the time of his passing in 2000, Mr. Landega was a bilingual honours student at College Pierre-Elliot Trudeau in Winnipeg with a goal of completing a university program in Computer Engineering.
As Mr. and Mrs. Andy Landega (Curtis’ parents) wish to offer financial assistance to those who need it most, this fund will support an annual bursary valued at the available annual income. The bursary shall be offered to an undergraduate student who:
(1) is enrolled full-time in the Computer Engineering Program in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Manitoba;
(2) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.25;
(3) has demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form;
(4) attended a secondary school program in Manitoba for at least four years.
In the future, at a time when the selection committee sees fit and the earnings on the fund permit, more than one bursary may be offered in a given year.
The selection committee shall be named by the Dean of the Faculty of Engineering.
