Petro-Canada Bursary
VALUE: TBD (1) - 2014-2015 award value


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 Bursary to one student who:

(1) is enrolled full-time (minimum 18 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 achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 2.0;
(3) has demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form.

ENGAP upgrade courses will not be used in the calculation of either credit hours completed or degree grade point average.

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