Susan A. Thompson Bursary in Women's and Gender Studies

This bursary was established by Susan A. Thompson, the first C.E.O. of The University of Winnipeg Foundation, the first woman Mayor of Winnipeg, the first woman Rotarian in Manitoba, and the first woman to be named Consul General of the Canadian Consulate in Minneapolis. This bursary will provide funds to a deserving student who has completed at least 30 credits hours and is continuing with a major in Women’s and Gender Studies. In the event that there are no applicants for the bursary, the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies may put forward a nominee. If a suitable candidate is not available, the award will then be open to any student majoring in Political Science.
