IAMSE Educational Scholarship Grant – Updated Information and Deadline

The International Association of Medical Science Educators (IAMSE) wishes to announce an increase in support for the educational scholarship grant program for the 2017 fiscal year. IAMSE will now award two grants per year, and the budgetary allowance has been increased to $5,000 per grant. In addition, each successful applicant will receive a $1,500 travel award to present the results of their grant research at an IAMSE meeting subsequent to the grant award.

Due to these changes, the deadline for submission of 2017 grant proposals has been extended until February 15, 2017.

All IAMSE members are eligible to submit a grant proposal. Preference will be given to new projects, and must be relevant to the mission of IAMSE. The results of funded projects must be presented at a future IAMSE meeting. The initial funding award will be announced via email, and at the 2017 IAMSE meeting.

Applications are to be submitted in duplicate to Brandi Hinkle (brandi@iamse.org) and Norma Saks (norma.saks@rwjms.rutgers.edu) via email by Febuary 15, 2017. You can find the instructions for grant proposals here: http://www.iamse.org/iamse-grants/.

All information regarding the IAMSE Educational Scholarship Grant, including the application process, eligibility, proposal format, and evaluation criteria can be found on the IAMSE website (www.iamse.org).
