Fellowships, Awards, and Grant Opportunities

Frymoyer Scholars Program

Through the Frymoyer Scholars Program, the John W. and Nan P. Frymoyer Fund for Medical Education supports physicians and nurses who are actively engaged in teaching University of Vermont medical and nursing students and who embody the best qualities of the clinician teacher. The program is an investment in outstanding medical education and promotes teaching that emphasizes the art of interprofessional collaborative patient care.

Individuals selected as Frymoyer Scholars are awarded up to $25,000 a year for two years to develop innovative educational products or programs and/or to improve their teaching skills and in turn the relationship between clinician and patient. These funds should be used to complete a project or take courses in faculty development/bedside teaching that might not otherwise be done due to lack of funding. The 2021 Call for Proposals is open now! For more information please contact the Teaching Academy at teaching.academy@med.uvm.edu

Medical Education Fellowships
Northeast Group on Education Affairs (NEGEA) Research Grants

The  Northeast Group on Educational Affairs (NEGEA) supports and encourages  scholarship in medical education. To help its members participate in  opportunities that provide educational scholarship, the NEGEA provides funding  to initiate new Medial Education Scholarship, Research and Evaluation (MESRE –  formerly RIME) proposals. The NEGEA will provide up to two research grants for  two years. The grant award may total up to $3000 for submissions involving one  NEGEA institution and $5000 for submissions involving the collaboration of 2 or  more institutions. The NEGEA also seeks to promote collaborative projects  across institutions, and sections (UGME, GME, CME, 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.

The NEGEA offers two new grants for early and mid-career faculty: Professional Development Award or the Research Scholar Award. All inquiries and communications should be addressed to the NEGEA MESRE representative (Steven Rougas M.D., M.S. – negeamesre@gmail.com).
