Fry Family Foundation Dr. Philip Warren Exceptional Achievement Award

The Fry Family Foundation Dr. Philip Warren Exceptional Achievement Award is part of the Fry Family Foundation Awards program. This Award was created to recognize and encourage tomorrow’s great leaders. The Fry Family Foundation was founded by Darryl and Marlene (nee Sellars) Fry, who were born, raised and educated in Newfoundland and Labrador. They are alumni of Memorial University and have a passion for both the university and the province. The Foundation helps to build stronger communities by investing in the development of young talent, as well as supporting health, social causes, nature and the arts.

Valued at $5,000 each, up to four new Awards will be granted annually to students graduating from a Newfoundland and Labrador high school or equivalent, who are living in the area served by one of the five St. John’s Community Centres (Buckmaster’s Circle, MacMorran, Froude Avenue, Rabbittown, and Virginia Park). An application is required. Eligible students must demonstrate financial need and selection will be based on academic achievement. The applicant must plan to enroll in first year studies at any campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland or the Marine Institute.

This Award is renewable for up to four years (five years total), depending on the duration of the student’s program, provided the recipient maintains clear academic standing and continues as a full-time undergraduate student at Memorial University or Marine Institute. Renewal will be determined by Memorial University or Marine Institute as appropriate.

The Awards to students who choose to attend Memorial University (excluding the Marine Institute) will be awarded by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards. Awards to students who choose to attend the Marine Institute will be granted by the Marine Institute Scholarships Office.


Applicants must submit both an application for the award and application for general admission by March 1.
