Undergraduate Award in Professional Studies
The Undergraduate Award in Professional Studies was established by Mr. Alan Rowe (B.Comm. ’78) through a generous donation to the Dare To: The Campaign for Memorial University. To be eligible, candidates must be Aboriginal students from Labrador or the Territories of Canada who are enrolled full-time, and have clear academic standing. Preference will be given to students who have demonstrated financial need. Awarded upon entrance to an eligible undergraduate professional program, the Award is valued at $2,500 per year and is renewable for three additional years assuming the recipients maintain clear academic standing and full-time enrollment. Two new recipients will be selected each year on a rotating basis, between the Faculties of Business Administration, Engineering and Applied Science, Medicine, and Education and the Schools of Nursing, Pharmacy, and Social Work. If a successful candidate is not recommended by the discipline on rotation in a given year an eligible student from one of the other disciplines may be awarded the scholarship for that year. The Awards are granted by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards with input from the Aboriginal Resource Office, and on the recommendation of the Deans of the appropriate academic units.
