About the MRC Awards

The Manitoba Research Chair Awards support internationally recognized mid-career researchers who work as independent investigators in health research. The Awards are five year awards intended to increase the competitiveness of the individual investigator within a program of research.

To be eligible, investigators must hold an academic appointment at the rank of Assistant Professor (or equivalent) or above in Manitoba when the award commences; must have between 5-10 years of independent research experience as of application deadline; and must devote at least 75% of their time to research.

Each award provides support up to $100,000 per year for five years, inclusive of benefits.
