Important dates

Eligibility

Scholarships are normally offered to full-time students based on academic achievement and course load and usually require that the recipient re-register at the University of Manitoba for the subsequent year. In most cases, students must register for and complete at least 80 per cent of a full course load per term (i.e. a minimum of 24 credit hours during the fall/winter terms), unless otherwise specified in the terms of the scholarship by the donor (or a representative of the donor).

Please note that graduate students do not have to adhere to credit hour minimums provided they are registered as full-time students over the fall and winter terms with the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

Eligibility criteria and application requirements vary by award, so please be sure to read the details of each scholarship carefully before applying.
