Internal Research Grants

The University of Winnipeg is committed to assisting our faculty in the pursuit of academic research and knowledge mobilization. Through a variety of internal research grant programs, we support faculty at all stages of their research program. See more below for an overview of the internal research grants and more information on institutional research policies.

The Research Office is currently undertaking a review of the internal research grants and would like your feedback on the proposed changes! An overview of the proposal is available for review, and you can share your feedback via a survey and/or at one of two Town Halls on October 31 or November 4.

For some internal grants (Major Research Grants, Travel Grants), the Department Research Committee and Department Chair may be asked to provide an evaluation and sign off on an application. Here are the forms to do so:
