NBME Emerging Innovators Grant Program - DEADLINE: October 8, 2023

To empower aspiring leaders looking to make a lasting impact in medical education, NBME is piloting the new Emerging Innovators Grant Program. This grant is intended to support early- and mid-career medical education faculty or staff who share NBME's commitment to advancing equitable practices which foster a diverse and inclusive medical community. NBME seeks projects that promote innovative thinking and push the boundaries of medical education and assessment locally and/or nationally.

NBME will fund up to $25,000 in total for each accepted proposal. Four proposals that can be completed within a 1–2-year timeframe will be selected. Grants will be awarded to medical schools accredited by the LCME or the AOA/COCA; applications are accepted from principal investigators with appointments at LCME- and AOA/COCA-accredited medical schools.

Whether the proposed research or program implementation is completely novel, or new to your own setting, NBME encourages emerging innovators to apply for this new grant opportunity by Oct. 8, 2023. The 2023 call for proposals focuses on the theme of Promoting Equitable Assessment in Medical Education.

NBME encourages proposals from individuals and/or teams which include those who are minoritized and/or marginalized in medicine. Teams are also encouraged to include learners or trainees among their membership.
