Stewart Pugh External Study Scholarships


Mr. Stewart Granger Pugh has bequeathed $300,000 to the University of Manitoba, to establish an endowment fund in support of students in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences. Mr. Pugh received his Bachelor of Science in Agriculture degree from the Faculty of Agriculture and Home Economics in 1940. 

The available annual interest from the fund will be used to offer a variable number of scholarships, valued up to a maximum of $2,000, to defray transportation costs for undergraduate and graduate students who plan to travel to another university or institution, in Canada or abroad, to further their studies in agricultural or food sciences. This may involve study or research for one academic term or participation in a short-duration study tour used as a credit course towards their degree or diploma. 

The scholarships will be offered to students who:

(1) are enrolled full-time (minimum 24 credit hours) in the third or fourth year of study in a degree program, second year of study in the diploma program, or have completed one year of an MSc program or PhD program in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences at the University of Manitoba;

(2) have achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.0.

Candidates must provide: (1) an outline of the course of study they wish to pursue including (a) justification for the external study, (b) their goals with respect to professional and personal development as a result of the external study, and (c) estimated transportation cost; (2) a letter of support from their thesis advisor or undergraduate program committee chairperson indicating that he/she approves of the institution at which the candidate will undertake his/her program of study/research.

Institutions where the term of study would be conducted and the work study course in which the student would participate must be approved by the student’s thesis advisor or undergraduate program committee chairperson

The selection committee for these awards will be the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences Awards Committee.
