Graduate Student Awards

The Irene E. Nordwich Foundation provides awards to graduate students registered in the College of Nursing, University of Manitoba, and graduate students registered in the Arthur Labatt Family School of Nursing, Western University. The awards are intended to:

  • Ease the financial burden of a university education;
  • Encourage academic excellence; and,
  • Promote the College of Nursing, University of Manitoba and the School of Nursing, Western Ontario.

Awards are available to graduate students entering their 2nd year of a Graduate Program in Nursing. A minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 in the previous academic year is required for eligibility.

Although preference will be given to full-time nursing students and first-time applicants, all relevant applications will be considered. Financial need, special circumstances, and involvement in University and professional activities are considered in granting the awards.

The value of Graduate Awards is $3,000, although this amount may be adjusted at the discretion of the Foundation. The Foundation also determines the number of awards in any given year. The Foundation reserves the right to post the names of recipients.

The Application Form will be available between April 1 and midnight on May 31st (CDT)
