The Center for Learning and Innovation and Medical Education’s (CLIME’s) mission is to optimize teaching skills, foster educator career development, and support educational scholarship. We do this by creating a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming community that works together to achieve these goals. 

In keeping with our mission, CLIME is pleased to announce our annual call for CLIME Small Grant proposals. CLIME supports faculty who are working to develop innovative health professions education scholarship, including the scholarship of discovery, integration, application, and teaching.  We encourage scholarship in health sciences education, enhance the rigor of scholarly work, and support a growing community of educational scholars. Award recipients comprise a key part of the CLIME educational scholarship community and will present their projects at works-in-progress meetings. 

All applications must include a UW School of Medicine faculty member on the project. Although faculty at all career stages may apply, we are interested in funding projects that include junior faculty members. If there are multiple highly rated proposals, priority will be given to projects that are innovative, uphold high quality health sciences education research, and promote the application of scholarship to practice.  

CLIME has a total of $20,000 available for funding during this grant cycle. Awards are capped at $5,000. Up to $1000 of the award may be used for travel and conference fees if the funded work will be presented at the conference.  We seek to distribute awards across the five-state, WWAMI region. Funds must be spent between July 1, 2024 and June 10th, 2025.   

Proposals are due March 29, 2024 no later than 11:59pm (PST)
