Congratulations to the 2018 IAMSE Educational Grant Winners

Dear Colleagues,

The International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE) wishes to encourage and support scholarship in medical science education and funds multiple research grants every year. At the 2018 annual meeting, four faculty grants were given totalling $17, 838. With the support of ScholarRx, IAMSE also awarded two student grants totalling $4,965. In addition, the Principal Investigator of each funded project will be awarded an additional $1,500 travel award to present the results of their grant research at a future IAMSE meeting.
