UWinnipeg Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Research Award

Thu. Jun. 20, 2019

The UWinnipeg EDI Institutional Capacity-Building Grant Project Team today announced the UWinnipeg Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Research Award.  Funding for this award is provided through the federal EDI Institutional Capacity-Building Grant, which UWinnipeg was a recipient of this spring. The EDI Grant was awarded by NSERC and is designed to support the Federal Government’s commitment to tackling challenges encountered by underrepresented groups in Canadian research institutions. The EDI Grant Project Team has proposed that a portion of the project funds be allocated in the form of a grant to support UWinnipeg academic researchers engaged in EDI-related work and help further the overall aims of this project.

There are two deadlines for this internal call: July 20th and September 16th and each award has a maximum value of $7,500. There will be six (6) awards granted, with three in each competition intake. The application form is available at: https://www.uwinnipeg.ca/research/webgrants-forms-and-access.html. Applications are to be submitted to researchoffice@uwinnipeg.ca no later than 11:59PM on July 20th or September 16th
