Leslie F. Buggey Graduate Scholarship In Pharmacy

The Buggey family has established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba to offer the Leslie F. Buggey Graduate Scholarship in Pharmacy. The Manitoba Scholarships and Bursaries Initiative has made a contribution to this fund. The purpose of the fund is to support graduate students conducting a research project exclusively in the College of Pharmacy.

Criteria

Each year, the available annual income from the fund will be used to offer one scholarship to a maximum value of $10,000 to a graduate student who:

(1) is enrolled as a full-time Master’s or Ph.D. student in any year of study in the Faculty of Graduate Studies and whose research project is conducted exclusively in the College of Pharmacy at the University of Manitoba;

(2) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.5 in the last two years of their previous program of study.

Preference will be given to candidates in the following descending order:

(1) Pharmacy graduates - B.Sc. (Pharm.) or M.Sc. from The University of Manitoba;

(2) other graduates from The University of Manitoba;

(3) graduates from other universities.

It is the wish of the donor that this scholarship not be tenable with any other major awards valued at $15,000 or more.

The scholarship will not be given to the same candidate more than once unless the donor provides consent for the College of Pharmacy to do so.

In any year in which there is no eligible candidate the value of the scholarship will be capitalized. The College of Pharmacy will offer a commemorative medallion for this scholarship which will be
presented to the recipient at the annual College of Pharmacy Graduate Ceremony.

The Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies (or designate) will ask the Graduate Studies Chair of the College of Pharmacy to name the selection committee for this award.

The Board of Governors of the University of Manitoba has the right to modify the terms of this award if, because of changed conditions it becomes necessary to do so. Such modification shall conform as closely as possible to the expressed intention of the donor in establishing this award.

Note: For 2017, the estimated value of this award was approximately $4,800.00.
