Applications for the 2019-2020 University of Manitoba Graduate Students’ Association (UMGSA) Student Award are now open.


The Graduate Students’ Association confers peer-to-peer recognition of fellow graduate students who are not currently recognized by the University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship or other national awards. The Awards are designed to recognize the important contributions graduate students make to society through scholarship and community involvement. The Awards have been made possible by the generous contribution of Dr. James Burns, a levy applied to all graduate students approved through a GSA referendum, and a contribution made by the Manitoba Scholarship and Bursary Initiative.


Please review all materials carefully before beginning the process. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any step of the process at deadline for the receipt of application materials is Friday, August 9, 2019 at 4pm.
