VALUE: $1050 (1) - 2013-2014 award value


Dr. Ron and Mrs. Dorothy Britton have established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba with an initial gift of $10,000 in 2012. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to the fund. The purpose of the fund is to provide financial support for engineering students who have completed at least one year of study and are continuing in the Faculty of Engineering. Beginning in the 2013-2014 academic year, the available annual income from the fund will be used to offer one bursary to an undergraduate student who:

(1) has completed a minimum of 24 credit hours in the Faculty of Engineering;
(2) is enrolled full-time (minimum 60% course load) in the Faculty of Engineering in the year in which the bursary is tenable;
(3) does not have more than 130 credit hours completed towards the degree;
(4) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 2.0;
(5) is a student member of APEGM (Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of the Province of Manitoba);
(6) can demonstrate active participation, confirmed by a Faculty Advisor, in an extracurricular design project such as: SAE, ΒΌ scale tractor design, satellite design competition, concrete toboggan, or similar group project approved for consideration by the selection committee;
(7) has demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form.

It is the wish of the donor that the recipient may not hold any other one award of greater value than this bursary.

The selection committee will be the Scholarship, Bursaries, and Awards Committee of the Faculty of Engineering and will include the Associate Dean (Design Education) (or designate).

The Board of Governors of the University of Manitoba has the right to modify the terms of this award if, because of the 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.
