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.

For Major Research Grants, the Department Research Committee and Department Chair are required to provide an evaluation and sign off on an application. Researchers must then upload these evaluations to your application in WebGrants before the intake deadline. Here are the forms:

***NEW FOR 2024-2025***

  1. Due to upgrades planned for WebGrants, the June intake has been altered from June 15 to June 3. Please plan accordingly.
