To help its members participate in opportunities that provide educational scholarship, the NEGEA provides funding to initiate new Medical Education Scholarship Research and Evaluation (MESRE – formerly RIME) proposals. 

The NEGEA provides multiple research grants for up to a two-year period. The grant award may total up to $3,000 for submissions involving one NEGEA institution and $6,000 for submissions involving the collaboration of two or more NEGEA-affiliated institutions. NEGEA also seeks to promote collaborative projects across institutions, and sections (UGME, GME, CME/CEI, and MESRE), and seeks to stimulate the development of a community of educational scholars. The results of these projects will be public and presented at a NEGEA regional meeting.
