Health Research Mid-Career Operating Grants

New for 2017!

In accordance with the Canadian Institute of Health Research’s (CIHR) incorporation of gender and sex concepts for research applications, applicants to Research Manitoba Operating Grant categories (i.e., New Investigator and Mid-Career), will be required to answer the same four questions required by CIHR, as part of their application through the Research Manitoba Grants Management System (GMS). The four questions are:

(1)    Are sex (biological) considerations taken into account in this study? (Y/N);

(2)    Are gender (socio-cultural) considerations taken into account in this study? (Y/N);

(3)    (If the respondent answers "yes" for one or both questions #1 and/or #2) Please describe how the sex and/or gender considerations will be considered in your research proposal. (maximum of 2,000 characters);

(4)    (If the respondent answers "no" for one or both questions #1 and/or #2) Please explain why sex and/or gender are not applicable in your research proposal (maximum of 2,000 characters).

Please note that sufficient justification must be made as either how the sex and/or gender considerations will be considered in your research proposal, or why sex and/or gender are not applicable in your research proposal.

Applicants are asked to consult the CIHR Sex, Gender and Health Research Guide: A Tool for CIHR Applicants and  the CIHR training modules for assistance on completing the above four questions.

New for 2017!

An updated Canadian Common CV (i.e., no older than six months), will be required for submission for all applications (including co-applicants).

Health Research Mid-Career Operating Grants are designed to help defray the normal operating costs of carrying out a specific research proposal. This grant will provide funding for a maximum of TWO YEARS, for a maximum grant amount of $75,000/yr.

These funds are intended to help mid-career investigators with established research programs within the province, develop and/or re-establish key components of their research programs that will increase their success in obtaining funding from national and other external agencies.

Applicants who hold operating funds of $50,000.00 or more as Primary Investigator (PI) at the time of application to Research Manitoba WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR FUNDING.

The $50,000 cut-off applies to:

(a) money that the applicant has available to them at the time of the submission deadline (March 1, 2017), and

(b) money that the applicant knows is committed to them for the upcoming fiscal year (April 1-March 31, 2018).

Applicants must meet both criteria (i.e., both must be less than $50,000.00), in order to apply for a 2017 Research Manitoba Mid-Career Operating Grant.

All applicants MUST fill out the following FUNDING CHECKLIST and attach it to the pdf BUDGET JUSTIFICATION document within their application.
