The Council on International Veterinary Medical Education (CIVME) is an initiative of the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC), which is keen to promote and share best practices in veterinary medical education around the world. The council’s research grant program will provide a means for:
- Communication and collaboration that advances veterinary medical education around the world
- Collaboration amongst educational researchers
- Dissemination of innovations and other educational advances, to magnify the impact of projects by outreach to educators and their respective organizations
The CIVME Research Grant Program will support initiatives that align with (one of) the above mentioned goals. The applicant(s) must clearly and convincingly describe that the proposed project promotes international collaboration in veterinary medical education.
Proposals can be in one of two categories:
- Educational research projects (ERP)
- Educational exchange projects (EEP)
- The total budget requested should not exceed $10,000.
- The project and budget period should not exceed 24 months.
- Due to the limited size of the CIVME grants, indirect project costs are not considered. Indirect costs are those associated with the overall operations and maintenance of the organization and not directly related to the project described in the grant application.
