James Lawrence McEwan Memorial Bursary
VALUE: $16,825 (variable) - 2013-2014 award value


As a memorial to her son, James Lawrence McEwan (B.Sc.(C.E.)/76), Jane (Jeanne) McDougall McEwan has made a bequest to the University of Manitoba to establish an endowment fund in his name. The purpose of the fund is to provide bursary support for civil engineering students. The available annual income from the fund will be used to offer one or more bursaries, with a minimum value of $450, to undergraduate students who:

(1) are enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Engineering, in the Civil Engineering degree program;
(2) have achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 2.5;
(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, with the proviso that the minimum value of each bursary will be $450.

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

The Board of Governors of the University of Manitoba has the right to modify the terms of this award if, because of changed conditions, it becomes necessary to do so. Such modification shall conform as closely as possible to the expressed intention of the donor in establishing the award.
