Rymer Small Grants Program
Now accepting applications for the Fall process.
The Academy of Medical Educators awards annual small grants ($3500 or less, although occasionally grants of up to $5,000 will be considered) to support efforts to create, implement and evaluate innovative medical education programs and to develop scholarship in medical education. Grant funds are provided through the generous support of The Rymer Family Endowment, The Office of Faculty Affairs and The Academy of Medical Educators. Proposals should be no more than 5 pages in length and MUST include the following information:
Brief background describing the importance of the project and relevance to the University of Colorado School of Medicine (less than 1 page)
Goals or specific aims
Description of project or study including population, methods and evaluation strategy
COMIRB status (if appropriate)
Brief budget and budget justification
Plan for sustainability after funding is complete (if appropriate)
Note that while all education projects will be considered, special consideration will be given to projects that relate to SOM curricular priorities in the areas of longitudinal curriculum, learning communities, lifelong learning, master educator development, and quality and safety education. Applications are due by 5:00 pm on October 15, 2012. Applications should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
