Scholarship: The Federation annually offers one four year renewable scholarship to high school students entering one of New Brunswick's four universities and satellite campuses. This scholarship is entitled The George Semeluk Scholarship, founded by George P. Semeluk. Each high school in the province nominates a student for the scholarship. The student must exhibit strong academic standing, community excellence and who requires financial assistance.

A distinguished photochemist, Dr Semeluk served as president of the Association of University of New Brunswick Teachers and later as a key member of the bargaining team that secured a first collective agreement for UNB's full-time professors, librarians and instructors. Colleagues describe him as a "model of courage and integrity, as well as generosity and kindness" and as "a gentleman and scholar of unimpeachable integrity and a firm believer in the ideals of collegiality". At a time when FNBFA was faced with member disquiet over perceived lack of transparency in financial decisions, Dr Semelek became its treasurer and remained so for many years. Here he commanded the same respect and affection from member associations as he had from colleagues at UNB. It was in recognition of his personal integrity and his strong role in supporting and developing faculty activism that FNBFA created the George Semeluk Scholarship program in his honour.

Famous quotes containing the word committees:

    Cry cry what shall I cry?
    The first thing to do is to form the committees:

    One secretary will do for several committees.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    What lies behind facts like these: that so recently one could not have said Scott was not perfect without earning at least sorrowful disapproval; that a year after the Gang of Four were perfect, they were villains; that in the fifties in the United States a nothing-man called McCarthy was able to intimidate and terrorise sane and sensible people, but that in the sixties young people summoned before similar committees simply laughed.
    Doris Lessing (b. 1919)

    ... in the minds of search committees there is the lingering question: Can she manage the football coach?
