The Science Students’ Association of the University of Manitoba has established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba to create annual leadership-based scholarships. Scholarships are to be provided from this fund to support and encourage student involvement and leadership achievement by undergraduate students who also achieve academic success in the Faculty of Science. Each year, beginning in 2018-2019, the available annual income from this fund will be used to offer up to nine leadership-based scholarships of equal value in three distinct categories.    Each year, up to three COMMUNITY leadership scholarships will be offered to undergraduate students who:  (1) are enrolled full-time (minimum 80% course load) in the second, third, or fourth year of study in any degree program in the Faculty of Science;  (2) have achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.5;  (3) contribute to the social, cultural, or economic well-being of communities off-campus through sustained leadership involvement in community outreach or volunteer programs; and  (4) Demonstrate strong interpersonal skills through successful teamwork and collaboration with others.
