You already know MRU has incredible students, but did you know SAMRU has a scholarship program to recognize them? Each year, SAMRU’s E-Awards honour students who have made a difference on campus and beyond. Focusing on Enrichment, Endeavour and Excellence, the awards celebrate students who have shown an exceptional commitment to their community while maintaining focus on their studies at MRU. 

This year, we received dozens of applications from inspiring MRU students. At our annual scholarship ceremony, we awarded over $20,000 in scholarships to 17  students and student clubs. We also recognized four student-nominated faculty members for their exceptional contributions to student life and student success. 

Congratulations to all the applicants and winners!
