CORD - EMF Starter Grant - Emergency Medicine Education Scholarship


Deadline for receipt of application: February 16, 2018

Notification of award: June 2018

Funding: July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019


EMF-CORD Starter Grants in Emergency Medicine Education Scholarship are intended to provide a vehicle for emergency medicine education researchers early in their career that promotes the development of well-conceived projects while allowing for grant writing experience and recognition of successful grant applications.  Successful applications will revolve around innovation and/or the creation of new knowledge related to medical education including:  simulation, teaching, assessment, curricula, program evaluation, patient safety, and education as it pertains to medical students, residents, fellows or faculty.

As funding that supports professional development in education research, there are several unique components of these Starter Grants: (1) A mentor is an absolute requirement of all successful applications.  A mentor is defined as someone with significant experience and/or advanced training in education research who will assist with project design, implementation, completion and presentation and (2) Grant monies may be used for travel or project development opportunities that facilitate the education of the Principle Investigator and their funded project (e.g. MERC at CORD Scholar’s Program).  In addition, multi-institutional projects are encouraged due to the ability to more broadly generalize the results of these studies.  Up to $10,000 can be requested per Starter Grant. Though not required, preference will be given to faculty of CORD member programs. 


The principal investigator (PI) must have a primary faculty appointment in Emergency Medicine. The PI will be responsible for all arrangements and conduct pertaining to the proposed research projects, and supervising the work of all associate investigators.  Only US-based universities will be eligible to apply for this grant award.  The research proposal must be approved by the corresponding institutional review board (IRB) at the time of grant submission including those determined to be exempt.  This must be documented by inclusion of the IRB letter in the grant proposal.
