Award Information
Name:
Brice Wightman Entrance Scholarship in Engineering
Description:
In 2014, Dr. Brice Wightman established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba available to students entering the Faculty of Engineering directly from high school. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to the fund. The intention of the scholarship is to make it possible for a deserving student, with aspirations to become an Engineer, to begin their career. Each year, beginning in 2017-2018, the available annual income from the fund will be used to offer one scholarship to an undergraduate student who:

(1) is entering the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Manitoba directly from high school;
(2) will be enrolled full-time (minimum 80% course load) in the first year of study;
(3) has achieved the highest standing (minimum 85% average) in the courses used for admission to the Faculty, currently Pre-Calculus 40S, Physics 40S, and Chemistry 40S (or their equivalents).

The Brice Wightman Entrance Scholarship in Engineering is not to be held concurrently with any other entrance scholarship in the Faculty of Engineering, or the Schulich Leader Scholarship, and is not renewable.
