Undergraduate scholarships and prizes

In most cases, applications are not required for these awards as they are based on academic achievement. Scholarships are normally offered to full-time continuing students, with a minimum course load of 24 credit hours. There may be some exceptions based on the terms of reference for individual awards or other considerations outlined in the Student Awards Policy.

The following undergraduate scholarships in the Faculty of Science require an application. Students are also encouraged to visit the Financial Aid and Awards website to find additional internal and external scholarships that require applications.

  • Science Leadership Scholarships
    • Applications will be available in the fall of each year.

  • Bernice Warkov Safeer Scholarship for Excellence in Mathematical Science
    • Applications will be available in the fall of each year.

Prizes are based on the highest academic standing or best performance in a particular course, program, competition, etc., with a minimum grade point average requirement. Students are not required to re-register at the University of Manitoba to receive prizes.


Bursaries are based on demonstrated financial need. In most cases, students must be registered in a minimum of 18 credit hours to be eligible. To be eligible for bursaries at the University level and the Faculty of Science, students must submit the general bursary application. Bursary applications are available through Aurora in August. Please visit the Financial Aid and Awards Bursaries website to see the due date each year and for additional details.
