ENRRICH Summer Student Competition & Open House

The purpose of the ENRRICH Studentship is to recognize and prioritize the valuable skills and knowledge that comes from life experience. The ENRRICH studentship was developed to support inclusion, diversity, equity, accessibility, and justice, and to enhance participation of groups who have been historically and systematically marginalized and excluded from broader participation at the University of Manitoba. Two (2) studentships will be available per competition.
