Educational Support Grant

Educational Support Grants are made available to the College of Medicine faculty to encourage advancements in health professions education.  Grants are awarded to faculty to support the implementation of innovative educational programs.  Grants are for a one-year period and are awarded based on the benefit to medical students, the faculty member, and the College of Medicine.

Examples of past grants that have been awarded include:

While residents and fellows may also be impacted by the proposed program, Educational Support Grants are intended for funding innovations in the COM medical student education.

Staff or faculty salary support is not available through Educational Support Grants.  Grant funds may be used to pay part-time, temporary workers, such as students who are contracted exclusively for this project.

Support for travel is also not available through Educational Support Grants unless it is related to learning about a specific educational innovation for incorporation into the COM Curriculum.
