About CLIME Small Grant Awards Program

CLIME’s mission is to create a diverse, inclusive, and welcoming community that works together to optimize teaching skills, foster educator career development, and support educational scholarship.  

In keeping with our mission, CLIME is pleased to announce a funding opportunity for faculty 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, 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 that include junior faculty members. While all applications must include a UW School of Medicine faculty member on the project, we strongly encourage interprofessional submissions. 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.  

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 cannot be supported by the grant. We seek to distribute awards across the five-state, WWAMI region. Awarded funds must be spent between July 1 – May 31st of each academic year 

Applications open mid-January.
