Purpose:
The WGEA seeks to promote scholarship in medical education and advance the community of scholarship within the Western region. To that end, funds are available for investigators via a mini-grant program. Investigators can request up to $5,000 to initiate a new study or up to $1,000 for completing an ongoing study.

Eligibility:
• The Principle Investigator must be a faculty member at a WGEA member school
• Applicants may submit only one proposal per cycle and may not be an author on any other proposal currently receiving WGEA and national GEA funding
• Applicants may not be current members of the WGEA executive committee

Priority will be given to multi-institutional studies that will enhance the community of scholars in the Western region.
Please review the full call  for further information
