Awards & Scholarships

Award letters are now available online through Aurora Student.  To improve access and communication, award recipients will now receive an email notification when their award letter is available online.  Students are able to access their award letter on all platforms (i.e. computer, tablet, mobile) and can also print out their own copy of the award letter. 

Please note: Financial Aid & Awards will no longer be mailing out award notification letters to students, and email notifications will only be sent out to university email accounts.

The University of Manitoba rewards academic excellence with an exciting program of entrance scholarships for recent high school graduates and a wide range of awards for current students who excel within their faculties.

In 2015/16, more than 1300 1st-year students received entrance scholarships totalling over $2 million, while 2nd year and senior students received more than $6 million of scholarship and award funding. When this is combined with $340,000 in athletic scholarships, $3 million in UM bursaries, and $1.3 million in scholarship and bursary funding from outside agencies, the University of Manitoba issued more than $13 million to students in the form of awards, scholarships and bursaries

Scholarships are normally offered to full-time students based on academic achievement and course load only and 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 percent of a full course-load per term (i.e. a minimum of 12 credit hour per term), unless otherwise specified in the terms of the scholarship by the donor (or a representative of the donor).

Note: 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.
