PhD Dissertation Awards

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.

The purpose of the PhD Dissertation program is to support graduate students in Social Sciences, Humanities, Natural Sciences, Engineering, or Health programs who often work on projects that are not directly related to their supervisor’s research program and, therefore, incur costs in conducting their dissertation research.

This program will support a limited number of PhD Dissertation Awards for up to $5,000.

Eligibility requirements, and further program information can be found in the Program Guide.
