Do you need funding to kick-start an education project?
The IEE Small Grants Program provides funding for JHUSOM faculty members to support educational scholarship and innovation projects. Some calls permit topics in all areas of medical and biomedical education, broadly defined, while others have a specific and more limited focus. We use a two-phase process. Phase I: brief written application; Phase II: the IEE Managing Board, who makes final decision of funding, selects finalists to present live.
Award amounts up to $5,000 but smaller amounts are possible.
We encourage applicants to develop their own mentoring team. Applicants can also meet with the IEE Small Grants Advisory Committee, chaired by Steve Sozio, MD, MHS, MEHP, to help with proposals (as available). Finalists are strongly encouraged to meet with this Committee in advance of their presentation. Dr. Sozio can be contacted at email@example.com for scheduling and guidance.
For the 2019-2020 academic year, the IEE is particularly interested in proposals that focus on respect, teamwork and civility in the learning environment.
