On in the occasion of Dr. Lotfollah Shafai receiving the 2011 Killiam Prize in Engineering in Canada, he and his family have established an endowment fund at The Winnipeg Foundation. The purpose of the award is to provide financial assistance to undergraduate students pursuing their studies in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

(2) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 2.5;
(3) has demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form.
Preference will be given to female students. If there are no female students who meet the criteria listed above, the bursary may be awarded to a male student who meets the selection criteria for this bursary.
This bursary may not be held concurrently with the Dr. Lotfollah Shafai Bursary in Electrical and Computer Engineering established through the University of Manitoba.
The selection committee will be the Scholarship, 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.
