Research Fellowship 2017–2018

The Centre on Aging invites applications for a Research Fellowship for the 2018–2019 academic year from University of Manitoba faculty members. See Guidelines and application form web page for full details.

Application submission

The Centre on Aging's Research Fellowship competition is now closed. Applicants will be contacted once the committee has adjudicated the applications.

Nature of Support

The Centre on Aging Research Fellowship is designed to support aging-related research in any discipline. The Research Fellowship is open to all University of Manitoba faculty members. An $11,000 stipend is available. The Fellowship is available to individual faculty members only, conducting their own research. It is not available to research teams.

The stipend will typically be used for teaching release for up to nine credit hours of teaching or equivalent. Funds can also be used as a research grant for costs directly related to the proposed research project, or as a combination of teaching release and research grant funds.


Highest priority for funding will be given to:

  • new researchers who do not yet have stable funding for their research; and
  • established researchers for whom aging-related research represents a new research direction.
