The College of Rehabilitation Sciences Endowment fund was established at the University of Manitoba in 1988. The purpose of the fund is to support the development of the College through its various constituencies - students, faculty members, support staff and alumni. Examples of projects that could receive support from the fund are enhancement of facilities, innovative teaching methods, staff development, research - any proposal that will enhance the College and its mission is eligible for support.
Currently, over $500,000 has accumulated in the fund as a result of student contributions, donations and accrued interest. Each year, half of the interest earnings are distributed to student bursaries and half to the Endowment Fund Project Competition. The recipients of the 2019 competition can be seen here. This year, approximately $21,000 will be available for project funding. The CoRS Endowment Fund Project Committee extends an invitation to apply for these funds.
