Mrs. A. Unrau and family created the Dave and Annette Unrau Award. This award is to be given to a student at Stonewall Collegiate who is in a modified or individualized education program. They wish to recognize this segment of the school population who work incredibly hard but often do not get awarded for their efforts. The student does not need to apply for the award, but is nominated by teachers and selected by the awards committee. The student must have shown improvement during the year (either in behaviour or marks) OR has consistently been a hard-working student; has a good attitude; and has demonstrated a willingness to help others.

Scholarship Funds are established by an individual donor, a group or an organization through donations, fundraising efforts or a bequest. The minimum amount required to establish a Scholarship Fund is $7,500, which then would grow from additional contributions as well as through the investment policy of The Foundation.

Scholarship Funds are permanently established endowed funds with The Winnipeg Foundation which administers the funds that are designed to support students. All annual income is distributed as a scholarship in accordance with the approved spending policy of The Winnipeg Foundation.

All gifts received directly from a donor for a Scholarship Fund will be deposited to the appropriate fund and reported as contributed capital as part of the Consolidated Trust Fund
(CTF). The Winnipeg Foundation does not give money to establish a scholarship fund, but we do assist an organization or school in establishing a fund by providing information and ideas.

The Rev. Dr. Barry Grant Rasmussen Scholarship was established as a result of the grief that the communities of Teulon and Inwood were experiencing in the winter of 2003. Pastor Barry as he was known, was the Lutheran Church minister for the congregations of St. Peter, Teulon and Gethsemane, Inwood. Pastor Barry, his wife, Karen and two daughters, Amy and Michelle made Teulon their home in 1997 and soon became active, loved community members. On Saturday, January 25, 2003, Pastor Barry died suddenly at the age of 47 while doing something he loved, playing hockey.

Pastor Barry had touched the lives of many people in the few short years since he had made Teulon his home. The communities, including his friends, family and parishioners were in shock and mourning and deeply saddened by his sudden and untimely death. A few church members from St. Peter and Gethsemane met in early February to discuss how his ministry might continue to have meaning while at the same time give community members an avenue where financial donations may be given.

Pastor Barry aspired to higher education obtaining several degrees including B. Arts 1979, M. Divinity 1983, M. Sacred Theology 1994, and in 1999 he received his PhD in Religious Studies. It became apparent after several committee meetings and in consultation with Karen that an annual scholarship should be established in Pastor Barry’s name. Developing criteria for applicants was an easy process as it was very clear that Pastor Barry loved people, life, his community, sports and as mentioned post-secondary learning. The committee felt worthy recipients should be active in his/her community, school and church, play and/or coach sports, and plan to attend a University.  By early April 2003 over $3500.00 had been donated to the scholarship fund in memory of Pastor Barry. Pastor Barry’s family was in full agreement and gave their total support.

The first Rev. Dr. Barry Grant Rasmussen Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Marcie Smerchanski at Teulon Collegiate Institute’s Graduation Ceremony in June 2003 by Bruce Brunger, committee member and Karen Rasmussen.

The committee would like to acknowledge the community, St. Peter and Gethsemane churches, and the Rasmussen Family for their love and support in maintaining the Scholarship and in so doing continuing the ministry of Pastor Barry.

The Show n’ Shine is a fundraiser to raise money for scholarship in memory of our son, Michael Lindell. It has been a positive response to our tragic loss and has provided a lasting tribute to Michael. Mike had a passion for cars and furthering his education in the automotive industry was his goal. The scholarship funded by this event is awarded annually to a graduating student(s) from Warren Collegiate entering the automotive industry in the trades, technical or engineering.

The ICF administers the fund and pools gifts in a capital fund that generates income to allow the Scholarships to be awarded annually and in perpetuity. Receipts are issued for contributions of $10.00 or more.

The 2009 event is scheduled for Sunday, June 21, 2009. Please visit their website for further information.
