TERMS & CRITERIA

Petro-Canada has established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba, with a gift of $205,700 in 2006. The fund will be used to provide scholarships and bursaries for students in the Engineering Access Program (ENGAP), to encourage Aboriginal students to pursue studies in Engineering. The fund will be used to offer the Petro-Canada Scholarship and the Petro-Canada Bursary.

One half of the available annual interest from the Petro-Canada Scholarship and Bursary Fund will be used to offer the Petro-Canada Scholarship to one student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time (minimum 24 credit hours) in the Faculty of Engineering, in any Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree, and is a member of the Engineering Access Program;
(2) has completed at least 50 credit hours toward a Bachelor of Science in Engineering;
(3) has achieved the highest degree grade point average, with a minimum degree grade point average of 3.5.

In the event of a tie, the scholarship will be offered to the student who has completed the greatest number of credit hours. ENGAP upgrade courses will not be used in the calculation of either credit hours completed or degree grade point average.

The Petro-Canada Scholarship may not be held with the Petro-Canada Bursary or the ENGAP Awards.

The selection committee will be named by the Director, Engineering Access Program.

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.
