Tri-Council Bridge Funding Program

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE DEADLINE FOR TRI-COUNCIL BRIDGE FUNDING APPLICATIONS HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL JUNE 15th, 2017 at 4:00pm CST.

The Research Manitoba Tri-Council Bridge Funding Program supports grant applications falling below the funding capacity of targeted Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) funding competitions, to help increase the likelihood of success in their resubmission. The Tri-Council Bridge Funding Program covers the following Tri-Council programs:

  • NSERC Discovery Grant Competition
  • SSHRC Insight Grant Competition
  • CIHR Project Scheme Competition  

The highest priority for Tri-Council Bridge Funding support will be given to those applicants who do not presently hold significant operating funds as Principal Investigator. Tri-Council Bridge Funding grants will consist of a 1:1 match, with a maximum grant of $32,500 from Research Manitoba and a maximum total grant of $65,000/yr for a period of 1 year (with an additional year after the grant end-date to expend funds). The specific amount of each individual grant will be established based on a submitted budget/justification, as well as the matching commitment confirmed by the Institution, Department, Faculty and/or Unit.

Eligibility requirements and further program information may be found in the Tri-Council Bridge Funding Program Guidelines. 

The Tri-Council Bridge Funding application will open on the GMS on April 1st, 2017.  This round will be open to Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) applications.

The deadline for applications is extended until June 15th, 2017 at 4:00pm CST.
