The Government of Canada announced a new program to support the indirect costs associated with the conduct of academic research in institutions that receive research grants funds from any of the three federal granting agencies. This grants program for the indirect costs of academic research recognizes the growing indirect costs of conducting publicly-funded academic research. The University of Manitoba receives a special funding envelop in support of indirect costs of research. Allocation of these funds is determined as a component of the University's Annual Resource Allocation process.
