Centennial Entrance Scholarship

Centenenial Entrance Scholarship

In 2019, up to 11 Agricultural and Food Sciences Centennial Entrance Scholarships valued at $2000 each will be awarded to Manitoba high school students who plan to enter the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences at the University of Manitoba.  Eligible students may enter either the two-year Diploma in Agriculture program or the four-year Bachelor of Science degree program. Students entering the degree program either through Direct Entry (right out of high school) or through Advanced Entry (after completion of University 1) must register for a specific set of courses in their first year as determined by the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences and as outlined in the University First Year Planning Guide.

For a diploma student recipient, the scholarship will be applied to tuition in the first year of the diploma program.  For students entering the degree program through Direct Entry, the funds will be applied to tuition in the first year.  For students entering through Advanced Entry, the funds will be held until the student exits University 1 and registers in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences in their second year of study.

Applicants must:

  • apply for admission to the University of Manitoba;
  • complete courses required for admission into the University of Manitoba, from a high school located within the province of Manitoba;
