The Student Initiatives Grant is provided jointly between AMEE and ScholarRx, in line with their aim of promoting improvements in medical education and the development of learning resources in schools around the world in collaboration with students.

The grant aims to support student-led activities designed to improve medical education such as: training workshops/webinars, organisation of conferences, a research activity in medical education or the development of an educational resource.

Information about the 2023 Student Initiatives Grants will be posted the website as soon as it is available.

The Award

From the submissions received, four are selected to receive an initial grant of up to £500 as a contribution towards the implementation of the proposed initiative. 
After the initiatives are implemented, success reports are reviewed by the grant working group and an overall winner is selected. 

The winner receives the full grant of up to £2000 to support members of their team to participate in the upcoming AMEE Conference where they present a paper describing their project and its results.
