Medical Education Innovations Mentored Grant Program

The Academy of Medical Educators (AME) is pleased to announce a call for proposals to encourage innovation in medical student teaching and evaluation by faculty members of the University of Kansas School of Medicine (KUSOM). The priority for this funding cycle is to encourage mentorship in medical education research and scholarship. The Principal Investigator must identify a mentor who is a member of the AME as a collaborator on the project. This mentor may act as a co-PI or in a mentorship capacity only. Click here for a list of past recipients and their posters.

The maximum amount of funding per proposal is $15,000. A total of $30,000 is available. Funds must be transferred by June 1, 2020. Attendance at the Technical Assistance Workshop is strongly encouraged. It is required that each applicant meet with Dr. Joseph LeMaster or Dr. Buddy Poje to discuss their proposal prior to submission. Contact Teresa Beacham to coordinate or with questions!

A Technical Assistance Workshop will be held on Monday, November 18 at Noon (3020 Murphy; Salina- Room 225; Wichita- Great Plains). Register here!
