*Supporting File Required*


In memory of Randy Futros, his family and friends have established a fund in his name at The University of Manitoba. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative made a contribution to this fund. Randy was a second year student in the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering when he died tragically on May 23, 1999, while partaking in one of his favourite activities - skydiving. Randy showed exceptional school spirit in his short time in the Faculty of Engineering. He was involved in the University of Manitoba Engineering Student Society, was a integral part of the Canadian Society for Mechanical Engineering Student Group and volunteered as a racquetball instructor at the YMCA. Despite the time commitment and his dedication to these extra-curricular activities, Randy maintained a high grade point average. It is the wish of those who have established this award to honour Randy’s memory by offering the award to a student much like Randy - a studious, involved and compassionate student in Mechanical Engineering.

Each year, the award will be valued at the available annual income from the fund and will be offered to a student who:

(1) has completed the second year of the program in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering in the Faculty of Engineering;
(2) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.5;
(3) enrolls full-time in the third year of the program in Mechanical Engineering, specifically in the Aerospace Option;
(4) has demonstrated a high level of involvement and school spirit in extra-curricular activities both within and outside of the University community.

Eligible students will be asked to submit a completed Faculty of Engineering Extra-Curricular Involvement Questionnaire, which can be obtained from the General Office of the Faculty and submitted to the General Office of the Faculty on or before the designated deadline date for this award. If the recipient of the award does not register as required, the award will revert to the next qualified candidate.

The selection committee shall be the Scholarships, Bursaries, and Awards Committee of the Faculty of Engineering.
