Funding Opportunities

2021 Operating Grant Competitions

The Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba, in collaboration with the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Manitoba, has a number of funding opportunities for researchers and students involved in child health research related studies.

The Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba is pleased to announce the majority of the 2021 competitions will move forward. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant financial impact on the Institute over the past year. As a result:

  • Operating grant awards have been reduced to $50,000 and a total of 8 grants will be awarded for this competition
  • Travel grant competitions will remain suspended until further notice

Complete information on funding opportunities, including deadlines and details of the application process, can be found in the following 2021 Grants and Awards Guide:
