Clinical Education Research Grant Program Research Committee Procedures

Respond to requests for research grant program guidelines.
Send blinded copies of each application and review form (see attached) to the three expert reviewers.
As soon as possible after the reviews are received, calculate overall rating of reviews using the weighted criteria in the Guidelines for Research Proposals.
CACEF research committee members will review comments made by reviewers and note the overall ratings. They will then decide if the project is to be funded by the CACEF.
Researchers will reimburse the CACEF if they do not complete the project or present the final product at a CACEF meeting within one year of completion. Funding may include monies for travel expenses for presentation by researchers at professional national conference. CACEF will grant research funding up a maximum to $1000 per year (to be split if more than one proposal is submitted).
