TERMS & CRITERIA
Building Energy Management Manitoba (BEMM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy technologies in commercial, institutional and industrial buildings in Manitoba. BEMM wishes to promote student interest in energy efficiency and renewable energy technologies and design, and to encourage more focus on energy efficiency and renewable energy issues in the undergraduate studies of Architecture and Engineering at the University of Manitoba. BEMM has established an endowment fund of $20,000 to provide a scholarship in alternate years in the Faculty of Architecture and the Faculty of Engineering. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. The scholarship will be valued at the available annual interest from the fund.
The engineering scholarship will be offered to an undergraduate student who:
(1) has completed at least 71 credit hours in any Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree program;
(2) in the next ensuing academic session, is enrolled as a full-time student (minimum of 24 credit hours) in the Faculty of Engineering;
(3) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.0;
(4) has demonstrated interest in energy efficiency and renewable energy through enrolment in, or completion of relevant courses and/or previous work experience as outlined in the candidate’s scholarship application.
The selection committee in Architecture will be named by the Dean of that Faculty and in Engineering will be the Scholarships, Bursaries, and Awards Committee. The selection committees will include the Chair of the BEMM Scholarship Committee and one other BEMM designate.
