Shaun Lamoureux Best MMSF Operating Grant Award

History of the Award:

In February 2021, as a result of a portion of the income from a generous donation of $100,000 by Manitoba Blue Cross, the Foundation recommended the creation of the MMSF Shaun Lamoureux Legacy Award for the best operating grant in the MMSF Annual Operating Grant Competition. Shaun Lamoureux was Chief Financial and Technology Officer and Vice President at Manitoba Blue Cross for many years and in 2018 he was appointed President and CEO. Shaun will be remembered for his strong leadership and his dedication to Manitoba Blue Cross and the MMSF. Over his 18 years with Manitoba Blue Cross, Shaun’s business acumen, strategic vision and commitment to excellence played a significant role in the growth and development of the Foundation. Shaun was an avid supporter of the Foundation and is remembered for the many years of valued financial and business advice he provided.

This award will be presented annually to a Principal Investigator who received the highest overall score in the competition. It may be shared in the event of a tie. Selection is based on the quality of the MMSF written operating grant application, oral presentation, response to questions, the external reviewer’s comments and the resulting overall adjudication score of the subcommittee panel. The award is valued in the amount of $1,000 as a supplement to the adjudicated amount of the grant
