The Faculty of Science at the University of Manitoba offers support for researchers in identifying potential funding sources and preparing grant applications. Faculty members are encouraged to contact Kristen Kindrachuk, Research Facilitator & Business Development Officer, to discuss strategies to leverage funding for their programs and partnerships.
Submission Processes for Grants and Contracts
NEW UPDATED PROCESS AS OF NOVEMBER 2017
Faculty are encouraged to seek assistance in preparing grant applications. We recommend applicants have colleagues read their applications and seek out assistance from the Research Facilitator. For major competitions such as NSERC Discovery Grants, NSERC RTI, NSERC SPG and CFI JELF review by the Faculty of Science Research Facilitator is REQUIRED.
Approvals and Signatures
All funding applications must be approved prior to submission to the funding agency. Submit your completed application and FAAF via email for signing to 1) your Department Head, and 2) the Faculty of Science at email@example.com. After signing, the Dean’s Office will forward your application to ORS where it will be assigned to the appropriate contact.
ORS Deadlines: Major Tri-council competitions (e.g. NSERC Discovery, NSERC RTI, CIHR Project Grants) are due to ORS two weeks prior to the agency deadline.
Other ORS deadlines are typically one week prior to the agency deadline unless otherwise noted.
If you are seeking an OPTIONAL review by the Faculty of Science’s Research Facilitator, we recommend review take place prior to submission to ORS, please allow up to one week for this review. Where review by the Research Facilitator is REQUIRED, a schedule for deadlines will be sent out in advance.
