Health Research New Investigator 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.

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 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).
