This endowment supports The Winnipeg Foundation Graduate Awards in History. In anticipation of the 100th anniversary of The Winnipeg Foundation in 2021, the Board established the Friends of Our History Fund to generate scholarships for students pursuing graduate studies in Canadian history including the history of Canada’s Indigenous people and the history of philanthropy in Canadian society. Eligible students are enrolled in the Joint Master’s Program at the Universities of Manitoba and Winnipeg. There is a companion endowment called The Winnipeg Foundation Centennial History Award. It will first be granted in 2021 to a student at the University of Manitoba who is pursuing a PhD.
