VALUE: $575 (1) - 2013-2014 award value
TERMS & CRITERIA
The Geological Engineering Department in the Faculty of Engineering has established a fund with The University of Manitoba in the amount of about $1,600 in order to provide an annual bursary in that department. Monies for the fund were first collected in honour of Professor A. Baracos on the occasion of his retirement. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. Andrew Baracos was a professor in the Department of Civil Engineering and became the first head of the Department of Geological Engineering.
The bursary is to be offered to a student entering the Civil Engineering program after having completed the courses required in the first year of Engineering or in University 1 who has demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form.
The value of the bursary shall be the available annual interest* income of the fund. The first selection is to be made following the 1990-91 regular academic session. The first selection of the bursary is to be made in the 1998-99 regular academic session, as previously this award was a scholarship in Geological Engineering (see file for back ground information).
The selection committee shall be the Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards Committee of the Faculty of Engineering.
