The application period for the Mayor’s Scholarship for Community Leadership is now open and grade twelve students across Winnipeg are encouraged to apply.

“It’s great to continue offering this scholarship this year,” said Mayor Brian Bowman. “Since it was established, this scholarship has been recognizing high school students who have demonstrated a commitment to improving and strengthening our community, and it’s important to recognize their efforts because too often it goes unrecognized. I encourage all those eligible to apply to get their applications in!”

The Mayor’s Scholarship for Community Leadership, established in 2016, awards five, $1,000 scholarships to students who have demonstrated consistent and outstanding dedication to solving a community problem or making their community a better place to live. The Mayor’s Scholarship rewards the achievements of Winnipeg’s future leaders and supports them on the path towards their educational and career goals.

Applicants can demonstrate community leadership through activities that promote racial and social inclusion, drive reconciliation, encourage environmental stewardship, and support or empower Winnipeg’s less fortunate.

The Winnipeg Foundation manages the fund for the Mayor’s Scholarship including issuing scholarship cheques and tax receipts, as required. The Mayor’s Office manages application intake, and award recipients are selected by an independent selection panel.

Scholarship applicants must complete and submit an application form. The application form as well as additional application information can be found on the Mayor’s website. Only application forms completed in full will be considered.

Applications must be received by May 17, 2019.

The Terry Fox Humanitarian Award

Eligibility Criteria

Terry Fox Humanitarian Awards are open to students of all abilities.

To be considered for the Award, applicants must meet be:
  • In good academic standing.
  • Canadian citizens or landed immigrants.
  • Students graduating from secondary (high) school 
  • Involved in voluntary humanitarian activities (for which they have not been compensated).
  • Planning to or are already studying towards their first university degree or diploma at a Canadian post-secondary institution
Terry Fox Award Recipients are eligible to receive the Award until they graduate with their first university degree or diploma (for a maximum of four years), provided they maintain satisfactory academic standing and a standard of humanitarian work and personal conduct which, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, justifies the award.


The maximum value of the award is $28,000, dispersed over four (4) years. A stipend of $7,000 is issued directly to the institution each year in two installments of $3,500, one in September and one in January. For students who do not pay tuition fees, the award is $3,500 per year, issued directly to the institution in two installments of $1,750 each.
Recipients of the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award may not receive more than $15,000 in total scholarships annually (including the Terry Fox Humanitarian Award). If a student’s awards exceed this amount, any excess will be deducted from the student’s Terry Fox Award.
If a student’s academic expenses are covered by another source, they may choose to decline acceptance of the financial portion of the award. They will still be granted the distinction of being a Terry Fox Scholar.
