Frank and Marjorie Silver Bursary
Terms of Reference

On the occasion of her birthday and their anniversary, Mr. William Aaron (LL.B/71) has made a gift to the University of Manitoba, in honour of his wife, Randi Aaron (M.Arch./78). The endowment fund is named in memory of Randi’s parents and is intended to encourage Aboriginal students to pursue graduate studies in the Faculty of Architecture. The Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative has made a contribution to the fund.

The available annual interest on the fund will be used to offer a bursary to a graduate student who:

•  is Aboriginal (Status, non-Status, Métis, Inuit)

•  is enrolled full-time, in any year of study, in the Faculty of Graduate Studies, in one of the following programs: Master of Architecture, Master of City Planning, Master of Interior Design, or Master of Landscape Architecture

•  (i) as an entering student, has achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 in their undergraduate program or (ii) as a continuing student, has achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (or equivalent) based on the last two years of fulltime study

•  has demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form

In any year that no student meets the selection criteria set out in the preceding paragraphs, the scholarship will then be offered to a student who:

•  is Aboriginal (Status, non-Status, Métis, Inuit)

•  is enrolled full-time, in any year of study, in any Masters or Doctoral program in the Faculty of Graduate Studies

•  (i) as an entering student, has achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (or equivalent) in their undergraduate program or (ii) as a continuing student, has achieved a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 (or equivalent) based on the last two years of full-time study

•  has demonstrated financial need on the standard University of Manitoba bursary application form

The selection committee shall be named by the Director of Financial Aid and Awards.
