Scholarship Description: Beginning with the 2009/2010 academic year the UMGF will be further devolved to the Unit level. A unit is typically a Department but in the case of non-departmentalized faculties (e.g., Kinesology and Recreation Management, Law, Music, Pharmacy, and Social Work) can refer to a faculty, or even a program (e.g., Applied Health, Disability Studies Peace and Conflict Studies). UMGFs are being further devolved to the Unit level to increase the flexibility to whom and when these scholarships are awarded.  The UMGF is used to determine the recipients of the listed supplemental awards, which are meant to be held with the UMGF. The same process is used to upgrade new Master’s UMGF recipients to the Manitoba Graduate Scholarship for Master’s students. These supplemental award offers and MGS upgrades will occur in July of each year. Only students who have received an offer as of July will be included in the supplemental offers and upgrades. Awards which are paid on a biweekly basis, such as the UMGF, MGS or  Tricouncil awards, are NOT automatically applied to your tuition. You are  responsible for paying your own tuition.

Number of awards offered: Not Known

Duration of award: Fellowships are offered for 12 months.

What does it cover? $16,000 for PhD students and $12,000 for Masters Students are offered in the fellowship.
