The Winnipeg Foundation Innovation Fund of the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences is a $1,000,000 fund intended to seed innovative interdisciplinary research in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Manitoba. For the next 5 years (2019-2023) up to 1/5th of the fund will be made available on an annual basis. The maximum level of support is $100,000 and may be less (applicants must develop their proposed budgets with these figures in mind). Once expended, unless renewed, the Winnipeg Foundation Innovation Fund of the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences fund will terminate.

The purpose of the Winnipeg Foundation Innovation Fund of the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences is to seed innovative interdisciplinary research in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences between member departments and colleges. In so doing, it is intended to enhance the University’s national recognition in innovative interdisciplinary research with disruptive impact, as well as competitiveness in terms of national research funding. As such, the Winnipeg Foundation Innovation Fund of the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences is not intended to provide continuing support for ongoing research projects/programs or to serve as a substitute for national funding (e.g. Tri-Agency, NGO, Industry, etc.). The grant team are expected to use the funds awarded to develop their research to the point where applications for external funding can be made.
