TERMS & CRITERIA
The Engineering Access Program (ENGAP) is designed to provide persons of Aboriginal ancestry with access to the Faculty of Engineering by providing academic, social, and personal supports based on the individual needs of the students. The majority of funding for the administration of the program comes from the Province of Manitoba, Manitoba Education and Training, Advanced Education and Skills Training Division. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. The Faculty of Engineering provides space and resources for the program free of charge. This program originally began in 1985 and has since seen 25 graduates, making this the most successful Engineering Access Program in Canada and perhaps North America.
In order to encourage and recognize students in ENGAP, a fund has been established to support awards for ENGAP students. The funding is provided through corporate and private donations. The number and value of awards will vary from year to year, based on the amount of available funding. This fund will support two types of awards, bursaries and scholarships.
Scholarships will be offered to students who are enrolled in at least 60 percent of a full course load (as defined by ENGAP) over a 12-month period in the Faculty of Engineering, in the ENGAP Program. The value of each recipient’s award will be determined based on the recipient’s grade point average (to be calculated on all courses completed in the last academic session completed prior to the award being offered) in the following manner:
These are the initial values of the awards and the values may be increased in future years, as funding will permit. Students named to receive an ENGAP Scholarship based on grade point average of 4.0 to 4.5 will be named an “ENGAP Scholar”.
In order to retain the scholarship in the year for which it is offered, the student must maintain enrollment in at least 60 percent of a full course load (as defined by ENGAP) over the 12-month period following the offer of the award.
