Small Grants Program

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.

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 Board.
