FUNDING OPPORTUNITY THROUGH Centre for Healthcare Innovation (CHI)


The Centre for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) is offering five awards of $4,000 each to Manitoba researchers, students, and/or community organizations to engage with people with lived experience (patients, caregivers, and the public) in research design and/or grant development.

The deadline for CHI’s 2020 PREPPP (Preparing for Research by Engaging Patient and Public Partners) Award is November 9th, 2020 at 5:00 pm.

To date, the PREPPP Award has funded early engagement for 34 projects, many of which have gone on to win larger grants, and continue to engage with patient and public partners throughout their research. Some have also participated as presenters for CHI’s Patient and Public Engagement Lunchtime Learning series. Information about previous winners, eligibility, and the application form can be viewed at
