Student at the 2018 President's Scholars Reception

Congratulations to the 2018 President’s Scholars

November 1, 2018 — 

At a celebration on Friday, October 5, 2018, University of Manitoba President and Vice-Chancellor David Barnard recognized students who earned the distinction of President’s Scholar at a reception held in their honour. The designation is given each year to full time students admitted to the U of M with a minimum 95 per cent high school average and who maintain a minimum grade point average of 4.0 and a full course load for the rest of their first degree.

President’s Scholars who reach their fourth year maintaining their 4.0 GPA are presented with a gold pin they can wear to proudly show their commitment to their academic studies and leadership. This year, the university awarded 67 senior students with a pin. There are now almost 600 President’s Scholars at the University of Manitoba.

Sarah Saunders, Student Life Coordinator, Student Life was the emcee at the event. “President’s Scholars share more than an exceptional GPA, you also share the drive to pursue excellence in your academic and professional lives,” said Saunders.

The distinction of being a President’s Scholar makes a student eligible for a number of benefits, such as: scholarship funding of $1000 in each second, third, and fourth years of study (providing he or she meets renewal criteria), priority registration, notation on the university transcript, access to the President’s Scholars Study Lounge and special events.

President Barnard congratulated the students on their accomplishment, and said, “You will be the leaders, innovators, builders, and volunteers who will shape our society, culture, and economy and UM is proud to be a defining part of your stories.”

Of being chosen as a President’s Scholar, 3rd year student in the Faculty of Arts, Carly McFall said, “The recognition and support I have received through the President’s Scholars program has been invaluable to my success as a student.  The community of Scholars has both inspired and motivated me to strive for excellence in my academic career.”

The President’s Scholars program is a collaboration between the President’s Office, Financial Aid and Awards, First-year Centre and Student Life.
