Alumni-Supported Scholarships

Alumni Entrance Scholarships Among Most Generous in Province

The University of Winnipeg Alumni Association as well as other department specific alumni groups and donors have established a number of funds over the years supporting student awards.  Thanks to the generousity of many supporters these awards have assisted hundreds of students since their creation.

Alumni Entrance Scholarships are among the most prestigious and generous in the province. Six to ten scholarships of at least $5,000 each are presented each year. Announced every year in June, the awards recognize Manitoba high school students with exceptional academic standing, outstanding extra-curricular achievements and leadership potential. Each school may nominate as many students as they deem worthy. Please contact your principal or guidance counsellor if someone you know should be considered.

Keeping Scholarships All in the Family

Two $2000 "Family of Alumni" Scholarships - exclusively for family members of University of Winnipeg - are offered every year by your Alumni Association. If you are an alum and have a son, daughter or grandchild interested in attending or already attending UWinnipeg, he or she may be eligible for these awards:

  • Entrance Scholarship - a first-year scholarship given to an outstanding student on the basis of high school credentials earned outside of Winnipeg. Applicants also must have participated in extracurricular activities in school and the community.
  • Achievement Scholarship - an award for a returning student – someone who has completed at least 30 credit hours at The University of Winnipeg and is returning to UWinnipeg to continue his/her studies. Applicants must document their involvement in extra-curricular activities on campus or other activities demonstrating innovation and entrepreneurship.

For an application form and information deadlines, contact the University’s Awards Office at 204.786.9458. The student’s application must be accompanied by a letter from the Alumni Office which confirms that the parent or grandparent is a graduate of The University of Winnipeg, United College, Wesley College, or PACE (Professional, Applied and Continuing Education, formerly the Division of Continuing Education).

Alumni are defined as those who have completed at least 60 credit hours at The University of Winnipeg or received a degree from United College or Wesley College, or those who have completed a diploma or certificate program from PACE (Professional, Applied and Continuing Education, formerly the Division of Continuing Education).
