For many years the McLaughlin Foundation (MF) has funded senior medical residents or completing residents with research fellowships to facilitate the advancement of research skills. It has become a very prestigious recognition to have been appointed a McLaughlin Fellow. In 2000, the McLaughlin Foundation decided to discontinue its program and in shutting down, granted Canada's medical schools a lump sum payment intended to continue a program of clinical research development for senior/graduating residents.

The University of Manitoba was granted $500,000. This provides, as an endowment, an award of $25,000 annually in support of a senior resident's salary. The MMSF agreed, at their Board meeting in May 2002, to match the $25,000 (this award is approved annually by the MMSF board) to allow an award of $50,000 per year to a deserving resident showing promise of an academic career based on research activity.

To date the MMSF has provided contributions totaling $375,000 in support of this award. Additional funds provided by the University of Manitoba, through the Dean’s Fund, have increased the value of this award to $75,000.00 annually in recent years.
