Award Information
John Glanville Memorial Scholarship
VALUE: $500 (1) - 2013-2014 award value


The masonry industry has established an endowment fund to honour John Glanville’s contribution to the advancement of masonry engineering. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. Professor Glanville completed his Master’s degree in Civil Engineering at Queen’s University, Belfast, Ireland in 1955. He joined the University of Manitoba in 1958 as Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering. In 1985, he was appointed as the first Director of the Engineering Access Program (ENGAP).

Beginning in 2013-2014, one scholarship, valued at $500, will be offered to an undergraduate student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time (minimum 80% course load) in the Department of Civil Engineering;

(2) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.5;

(3) has taken or is registered in the Masonry Design and Construction (CIVL 4020) course.

In the event that there is insufficient income generated in any year to offer both a minimum of one graduate scholarship and the undergraduate scholarship, the graduate scholarship will take precedence.

The selection committee may request unspent revenue be used to supplement the graduate scholarship(s) in years when these funds are available.

The selection committee for the undergraduate scholarship 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.
