The International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE) is pleased to announce the “ScholarRx-IAMSE Student Educational Research Grants” Program, developed in partnership with ScholarRx to promote student participation in medical education research. Up to two (2) student grants will be awarded for up to $2500.
Applicants will need to have a faculty mentor sign off on the proposal confirming that all policies will be met. Proposals must be accompanied by a letter from an appropriate institutional official confirming that the institution will pay to send the student to the IAMSE meeting the year following project completion to present the results of the proposed work; timing of the presentation is flexible as to be appropriate for the completion of the project.
We encourage faculty members to forward this message to their students. Applications are to be submitted on the submission page found here by 11:59 PM Eastern Time on March 31, 2018.
Students who are enrolled in a degree/certificate program (such as BS, MS, PharmD, PhD, MD, DO) at a school or institution are eligible for this grant program. Persons with advanced/terminal degrees (such as postdocs, PhD, MD, MBA) who are employed in their field, or who have faculty appointments, are not considered to be students. The recipient needs to be an IAMSE student member in good standing. However, ScholarRx will generously provide a one year IAMSE membership to non-member student grant applicants at no cost.
All information regarding the ScholarRx-IAMSE Student Educational Research Grant Program, including the application process, eligibility, proposal format, and evaluation criteria, can be found on the IAMSE website here.
