The NEGEA provides funding to enhance its mission of advancing research and understanding in medical education. There are currently two opportunities for funding (PDF) available through the NEGEA. Call for proposals usually open in late Spring and close in late Fall. See below for more details.


In its strong support and encouragement of scholarship in medical education, the Northeast Group on Educational Affairs (NEGEA) provides funding to initiate new Medical Education Scholarship Research and Evaluation (MESRE) projects. The NEGEA seeks to stimulate the development of a community of educational scholars and thus is especially interested in projects promoting collaboration across institutions or across sections (UME, GME, CPD).

Scholars Grant

In its strong support and encouragement of medical educators’ professional development and scholarship in medical education, the Northeast Group on Educational Affairs (NEGEA) provides this funding opportunity for a 2-year grant for early and mid-career faculty to complete an educational scholarship or research project. This grant provides an individual the opportunity for professional development through the design, implementation, and completion of a high-quality educational scholarship project (including curriculum development, educational program, or educational research).
