Purpose

Opportunities for peer-reviewed grant support in Health Professions Education are limited. Learners and faculty at all stages, who have new projects, can face challenges in obtaining support.

  • Applicants (Principal Investigators) and Supervisors of Principal Investigators, if the Principal Investigator is a learner must be members of Canadian Association for Medical Education.
  • Members of the CAME Grant Committee are not eligible to be an investigator (or author) in the project.
  • Members of the CAME Executive, or the CAME Foundation Board of Directors cannot be a principal investigator on a submission; however, they can be listed as a co-investigator (or co-author).

Award amount
The maximum available funds per application are $5000, which can be spread over 12 months of support. There is a maximum of $20,000 in funds across the four grants. Funding will be awarded to one or more applicants at the discretion of the CAME Grants Committee. The committee reserves the right to not fund any projects in any given year.
