About AM•EI Education Grant

One of AM•EI’s goals is to develop faculty as quality and innovative educators who are interested in education research and scholarship. As such, educators will need to delve into healthcare education literature to look for ways to enhance the learning experience and seek to advance our understanding of best ways to create learning opportunities. 

The AM•EI Education Grant serves as a catalyst to stimulate the development, improvement and implementation of healthcare education research projects, innovative teaching and learning methods, educational assessment tools and strategies, or novel educational technology approaches and tools.

The awarded projects should produce measurable outcomes that can be published in peer-reviewed journal articles or resource-sharing platforms, such as MedEdPortal, thus contributing to the academic community. A successful project should be sustainable and benefit a wide community of learners.

Successful projects will receive funding of up to S$15,000, depending upon the scope and category of application. The Review Committee will decide under which category applications fall. Interprofessional projects are given priority.
