VALUE: $1500 (1) - 2013-2014 award value
TERMS & CRITERIA
Mr. A. Keith Dixon has established a trust fund at the University of Manitoba with an initial gift of $31,833.33 in 2012 to offer the A. Keith Dixon Scholarship in 2nd Year Engineering. The purpose of the scholarship is to provide support to students entering their second year of studies in the Faculty of Engineering. The donor has set aside $1,500 of his gift so the first scholarship may be offered in the 2012-2013 academic year. Beginning in the 2013-2014 academic year, the capital will be used to supplement the available annual interest generated by the fund to offer a scholarship valued at $1,500 until such time that the annual income generated by the fund is sufficient to offer an award of this value. Each year, one scholarship valued at $1,500 will be offered to an undergraduate student who:
(1) is enrolled full-time in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Manitoba;
(2) has completed a minimum of twenty-nine (29) credit hours;
(3) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.5.
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.
