Do you need funding to kick start an education project?

The IEE Small Grants Program seeks to provide project funding for JHUSOM faculty members. Some calls will permit topics in all areas of medical and biomedical education (broadly defined). Other calls will have specific and more limited focus. The purpose of these grants is to support faculty in educational investigations and innovative, creative, or entrepreneurial work on projects. To learn more about the current call, please click the link below "What to Do Next" to learn the specifics.

AWARD AMOUNTS UP TO $5,000 but smaller amounts are possible.

We have created an IEE Small Grants Advisory Committee to help with proposals. We encourage applicants to develop their own mentoring team, and meet with the IEE Small Grants Advisory Committee (as available). Those selected as grant finalists are strongly encouraged to meet with the IEE Small Grants Advisory Committee, well in advance of their presentation to the IEE Managing Board. The Chair of the committee, Steve Sozio, MD, MHS, MEHP, can be contacted at for scheduling and guidance.

A two-phase process will be employed.  Phase I: brief application; Phase II: IEE Managing Board will review and select finalists to present to the IEE Managing Board, who make final decisions on funding.

For the 2019-2020 academic year, the IEE is particularly interested in proposals that focus on respect, teamwork and civility in the learning environment.
