Shark Tank Call For Proposals

Shark Tank

Faculty, residents, fellows, post docs or medical students of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine (JHUSOM) are invited to submit proposals in all areas of medical, biomedical, nursing or public health education. Ideally a JHUSOM faculty member will be part of the team. Unfortunately, at this point, we cannot accept proposals from non-JHUSOM applicants.

Shark Tank has become a big hit at our education conference. This year, four to five finalists will be selected to present proposals to our panel of Education Scholarship Sharks, who will then distribute $10,000 among the project(s). The best proposal might get it all, or it might be divided among projects!

This is a great opportunity to receive feedback from recognized educational experts, understand the kinds of things expert review panels consider, and get funding for a project.

How Shark Tank Works:
Selected proposal presenters, will have five minutes to make a presentation, with or without PowerPoint slides, describing:

  • Why is this important?
  • What do you plan to do?
  • How will you demonstrate that it works?
  • What is your budget?

After each presenter has answered pointed questions and worked with the sharks, a final proposal or proposals will emerge and be awarded the grant(s).


Details of Submission:

Deadline: January 29th, 2018 at 12:00 p.m.
