Awards and Financial Aid

The Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences offers numerous awards and bursaries to students enrolled in the programs offered by the Faculty.

Most awards and scholarships are presented on the basis of academic achievement. Students do not need to apply for most awards as all students in the Faculty are automatically considered for them.

IMPORTANT: There are some scholarships which require an application, letter of application and/or letters of reference. These scholarships are usually advertised in September of each year. Please watch your University email account for more information.

Bursaries are awarded on the basis of 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 Faculty.
