George A. Grierson Memorial Scholarships

These scholarships are donated through The Winnipeg Foundation from the estate of Isobel Margaretta Grierson, a 1938 graduate of United College, in memory of her uncle, George A. Grierson. Mr. Grierson was born in Brantford, Ontario in 1867. He taught in Manitoba in Birds Hill and Minnedosa, and was elected as a Liberal MLA for the Minnedosa area in 1913. The scholarships will be awarded annually to students of Indigenous origin, or whose families or the students themselves have immigrated to Canada within the last 20 years. Preference will be given to students who have demonstrated persistence and strength of character, especially female students.
