The University of Manitoba was founded in 1877 and has become a well-established research-intensive institution. Two campuses make up the University of Manitoba. The Fort Garry campus is located near the south end of the city of Winnipeg and encompasses a spacious 274-hectare area along the bank of the Red River, while the Health Science campus is part of one of Western Canada’s most modern health care complexes located in the city centre.
The Faculty of Graduate Studies was founded in 1949 and brings together a community of scholars comprising 3,300 students and 1,970 faculty members from over 130 graduate programs across the university. We have a long and proud tradition of achievement and innovation in graduate scholarship as part of the oldest University in Western Canada, but education lives and breathes in response to changing developments in society and the body of knowledge which informs it. Our focus is to continue the visionary development of new programs, community relationships, and administrative infrastructure which will contribute to promote excellence in graduate education, scholarship, creative activity and research.
The University of Manitoba offers a variety of financial support to its graduate students. In addition to the research support many students receive from their advisors, the University has millions of dollars available for University of Manitoba Graduate Scholarships (UMGFs), Manitoba Graduate Fellowships (MGFs), International Graduate Student Scholarships (IGSS) for students entering and continuing in their graduate programs, competitive top-up funds for national awards (i.e., NSERC, SSHRC, CIHR), as well as more than 600 other graduate scholarships and bursaries, which are administered by the various graduate programs.
Graduate work at the doctoral level is offered in the faculties of Agricultural and Food Sciences; Architecture; Arts; Dentistry; Education; Engineering; Clayton H. Riddell Faculty of Environment, Earth, and Resources; Graduate Studies (Peace and Conflict Studies program, Interdisciplinary Programs); Human Ecology; Medicine; Pharmacy; Science; Social Work, and the I.H. Asper School of Business.
