International Graduate Student Bursary

Tuition fees paid by international graduate students have increased effective September 2005. Graduate students who are pursuing two-year Masters or Ph.D. degrees and began their program in the 2004-2005 session will be affected by this increase in their second year of study. In order to address this transitional period, international students commencing their second year of study in the 2005-2006 academic session will be considered for an International Graduate Student Bursary. The selection committee will determine bursary values with a maximum value equivalent to the increase in the differential fee assessed.

The bursaries will be offered to students who:

(1) are international students (i.e., those entering Canada on study permits) enrolled full-time in their second year of study in a two-year Master’s or Ph.D. program in the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the University of Manitoba;

(2) are paying the international student tuition fee;

(3) have achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.0 based on their year of study at the University of Manitoba;

(4) have demonstrated financial need on the University of Manitoba bursary application form.

Bursary offers will be made prior to the start of the 2005-2006 academic session. Bursaries may be redeemed upon enrolment in the Faculty of Graduate Studies and registration in a graduate program of study. They must first be applied against outstanding tuition fees. The International Graduate Student Bursary cannot be held with the International Graduate Student Scholarship.

Selection for these bursaries will be based in the Financial Aid and Awards Office and administered according to standard University of Manitoba practice.
