CIVME Educational Research Grant Program

Educational Research Grant Program

The Council on International Veterinary Medical Education (CIVME) is an initiative of the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges which is keen to promote and share best practices in veterinary medical education around the world. The council 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 Educational 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. 

NOTE: preference will be given to applications that are collaborative efforts between institutions and across regions. If you have an idea and are interested in collaborating but don’t have partners, then please contact CIVME at and we can help suggest potential partners for you to work with prior to the deadline. 

Total project budgets should not exceed $5,000 and are limited for a period of max. 24 months. Further information for applicants is described in the Educational Research Grant Application form.
