Health Research Graduate Studentships


In the 2017 Provincial Budget, Research Manitoba received a $2 million cut to its budget, which is now $15 million annually. 

While Research Manitoba traditionally launches our Trainee, New Investigator, and Mid-Career Investigator Health Competitions December 1stthe launch of the 2018-2019 competition has been postponed. Please be aware that with our recent budget cut and current strategic planning process, there could be significant changes for, and possible cancellations of, existing programs. We are currently working through this process and we will share more information in the last week of April, 2018. 

We understand that this may bring about substantial changes and we greatly appreciate your patience as we work through this.

A limited number of Health Research Graduate Studentships are offered to qualified graduate students who are undertaking full time Master's or Doctoral programs in the Province of Manitoba.

However, in those disciplines where training at the pre-doctoral level is not available within the province, Research Manitoba will consider funding elsewhere if documented evidence, indicating the unavailability of provincial training opportunities and a firm intent to return to the province after training, is provided.
