The Vineberg Research Prize is awarded to a student submitting a published or unpublished research report based on work carried out by the student while registered at the University of Manitoba. A student can make only one submission per competition. Previous award winners of the Vineberg Prize are not eligible in subsequent competitions. By December 1 of each year, The Chair of the Research and Scholarship Committee will call for student submissions for the Vineberg Prize. The deadline for submissions will be January 31st.
The winner or winners (in the case of a tie) will be announced by the Chair of the Research and Scholarship Committee. Submissions must be in the form of journal articles, using the conventions specified by the APA Publication Manual or by a recognized scientific journal. The submission is limited to 35 pages of text (excluding title pages, references, tables, etc.). A submission may have co-authors, but the Vineberg Prize candidate must be the first author and the individual primarily responsible for the project described in the report (e.g., hypotheses, data analyses, writing, etc.).
Each submission will be circulated to three evaluators, two faculty or graduate student members of the Research and Scholarship Committee, and a Department faculty member who is not a member of the Committee. Evaluators will assess each submission based on a 9-point rating scale (1 = poor; 9 = excellent) and may provide written comments about the submissions. The winner will be the highest ranked submission based on the ratings provided by the evaluators. Ties may be declared.
The winner or winners receive a cash payment of the amount of the annual income from the Vineberg bequest which was left by David Vineberg to the University on February 1, 1960. (Approved by Department Council May 24, 1990.)
