Award Information
John Glanville Memorial Scholarship
The masonry industry has established an endowment fund to honor John Glanville's contribution to the advancement of masonry engineering. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has also contributed to this fund. The award was been set up to offer one or more scholarships to graduate students and one scholarship to undergraduate students in Department of Civil Engineering, Faculty of Engineering at the University of Manitoba. (This database will only list the undergraduate criteria)

Beginning in the 2013-2014 academic year, the available annual interest from the fund will be used to offer one scholarship of $500 to the undergraduate Engineering student at the University of Manitoba 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 valued at and one undergraduate scholarship, the graduate scholarship will take precedence. The selection committee may request that the unspent revenue be used to supplement the graduate scholarship(s) in years when funds are available.

The Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies (or designate) will ask the Chair of the Scholarships, Bursaries, and Awards Committee of the Faculty of Engineering to convene the selection committee for the graduate student scholarships (award #45333). The selection committee for the undergraduate scholarship will be the Scholarships, Bursaries, and Awards Committee of the Faculty of Engineering.

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).
