It’s a prestigious academic clique, and now 4th year engineering student Tyler Grant is among the elite.
The University of Manitoba student has been awarded the Rhodes Scholarship for 2010 — bringing the total of U of M students to receive the honour to 93.
Grant has his eyes set on becoming a biomedical researcher and an orthopaedic surgeon. The Springfield Collegiate graduate was also athlete of the year six years in a row and is touted as a classical guitarist.
“I learn through repetition and instruction,” Grant notes. “I have good hands and I seem to be free of performance anxiety.”
The U of M has produced more students who receive the Rhodes Scholarship than any other university in Western Canada.
