Small Grant Program

We are pleased to announce the 2018 Academy of Health Science Educators Call for Education Grant Proposals. These small grants ($3,000 or less), are designed to provide support scholarship in health science education that leads to dissemination.

For the purposes of this small grants program, health science education scholarship is broadly defined and might include (but is not limited to) any of the following areas:

  • Evaluation of a novel teaching methodology, course, or mentoring program
  • Development and validation of educational assessment methods
  • Evaluation of interdisciplinary/interprofessional education
  • Assessment of the impact that educational practices for students/trainees have on patient outcomes


  • Applicants (principal and co-investigator) must be a University of Utah faculty member appointed to the career line or tenure line at the rank of instructor or above (adjunct and visiting faculty are not eligible).
  • Applicants (principal and co-investigator) must be a Fellow or Member of the Academy of Health Science Educators.
  • If an AHSE Trainee would like to submit a grant proposal, they must be a co-investigator with an AHSE Fellow or Member.
  • Research grants awarded from the Academy should be used to study and benefit learners in a formal academic program (e.g. health science students, residents, fellows, faculty, etc.). Educational programs within the hospital or clinic meant for training staff members or patients are not eligible.


  • Up to $3,000 for one year
  • Non‐renewable
  • Preference given to interprofessional collaboration
  • Awardees expected to present at the annual AHSE Education Symposium
