Frequently Asked Questions

Does the scholarship only apply to universities and colleges in Manitoba?

The scholarship will be awarded to the student to use at whichever university/college he or she is accepted. The only requirement is that there be proof of acceptance.

What is meant by Thompson’s trading area?

Although Thompson is not recognized as a region unto itself, there are many surrounding communities which are involved with Thompson on commerce, educational, political, cultural and recreational levels. Thompson’s trading area encompasses those communities.

Do I have to be a Grade 12 graduate or have GED equivalency?

Although this is not a requirement of the bursary, you may find it is a requirement for entering the university/college of your choice.

Am I still eligible if I am receiving other scholarships and/or funding?

Students who are seeking assistance through other bursaries and scholarships will still be eligible for the R.W.F. Hunt Scholarship. However, students whose education is funded by an agency or other organization will not be eligible.
