Health Research New Investigator Operating Grants

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

Research Manitoba is reviewing its organizational priorities and will align our programs with strategic goals identified through this strategic planning process.  This could mean significant change for, and possible cancellation of, existing programs.  Research Manitoba is currently analyzing feedback from a stakeholder survey, and anticipates having more information on 2018 programming available early in 2018.

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


Health Research New Investigator 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 THREE YEARS, for a maximum grant amount of $75,000/yr.

These competitive awards are intended to support the independent health research programs of new faculty who have typically recently completed their postdoctoral training.

All current eligibility requirements and other information to assist in the application process can be found in the Guide (link below).
