U of M Student Awarded Rhodes Scholarship for 2010

Tyler Grant - Rhodes Scholar - University of Manitoba

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.
