A scholarship is awarded on the basis of academic achievement. To be eligible a student must complete with high, often highest, standing, a full normal year's work and must elect a full year's work in the year in which the scholarship is tenable.
A bursary is awarded based on need. Students can apply for the University of Manitoba General Bursary by applying online through their Aurora Student Account. Completion of one application will qualify students for most bursaries offered by the College. The exception is the CoRS Student Association Bursary which is also awarded based on involvement in student activities. The link to this application form is provided in the description of this bursary.
External awards are offered by industry, government and private organizations outside of the University of Manitoba. There are also many other external awards for which you may be eligible and we encourage you to also do a wider search. If you are the recipient of an external award, please contact the department to ensure you are acknowledged at the awards luncheons.
A prize is given according to the terms of each award and may be of high achievement in a single course, in a group of courses, in a year's work, or in a cumulative study program. Terms of award often include the requirements of a grade point average at or above the given minimum, high standing in cognate courses, and other specific considerations.
Dean’s Honour List – (for undergrads only) Highest sessional GPA of 3.7 or over, full-time, no transfers. Transfer credit will be considered.
CoRS Gold Medal and Program Medals – (for undergrads only) Cumulative (all three years) GPA of 4.0 or over 100 per cent of the full load of credit hours, full-time. Transfer credits will be considered.
Each year awards are offered based on the availability of funds. If funds become unavailable, for whatever reason, the award cannot be offered. Convocation awards are selected in October and winter awards are selected in November. Applicants are selected using a multiple member committee that is appointed by the awards chair. When the terms of reference stipulate, the donor is also involved in the selection process.
