Call For Proposals: 2018 Small Grants Program

CLIME’s mission is to advance and support health professions education at the University of Washington and throughout the WWAMI region using state-of-the-art methods, approaches and activities. We seek to promote and advance an integrated continuum of health professions education. 

In keeping with our mission, CLIME is pleased to announce a funding opportunity for both junior and senior faculty, staff and students who are interested in pursuing education scholarship. The goal of this funding program is to provide CLIME members with opportunities to develop innovative education scholarship in the health professions, including the scholarship of discovery (traditional research), integration, application and teaching.  By providing ongoing support to these activities at UW, we hope to develop and support a community of education scholars.

We are particularly interested in funding projects exploring aspects of curriculum renewal and ongoing curriculum improvement as well as diversity and inclusion in Academic Medicine. Priority will be given to projects that are innovative, enhance the quality of research in health sciences education, and promote the application of scholarship to practice. Examples include, but are not limited to: development and evaluation of innovative teaching methods, novel approaches to assessment, or comparisons of technology-based modalities to promote active learning.

CLIME has made a total of $20,000 available for funding during this grant cycle.  General awards are capped at $5,000. Travel and conference fees can NOT be supported by the grant. We seek to distribute awards across the five-state, WWAMI region.

Proposals are due by March 29, 2018, no later than 17:00 by email to clime@uw.edu.
