New Investigator Operating Grants are designed to defray the direct costs of research such as personnel costs, supplies and expendable materials, experimental animals, small equipment and computers, and knowledge mobilization/knowledge translation costs. These funds are intended to support new investigators in Manitoba to establish independent research programs and achieve the research productivity necessary for obtaining long term research funding from national research funding agencies and/or other external research funding organizations.

For the 2021 New Investigator Operating Grants competition, each category (health, natural sciences and engineering, social sciences and humanities) has been allocated five (5) awards. The final distribution of awards is subject to change based on number of applications received and eligible for funding.
