ICVA Assessment Grant Program – Now OPEN

ICVA Assessment Grant Program – Now OPEN

The ICVA grant program, overseen by the ICVA Academic Veterinary Assessment Committee (AVAC) on behalf of the ICVA Board of Directors, is pleased to announce the fourth year of its successful assessment grant program with up to three grant award opportunities of $10,000 USD.

The purpose of an ICVA assessment grant is to validate current, discover new, implement and support best practices in assessment in veterinary medical education. This includes assessment of students, instructors, and programs.

The primary research aims, or questions, must concern educational assessment or measurement issues and does not include technology development, teacher training, and course development. Proposals that demonstrate capacity in advancing knowledge of assessment practices/methods (spanning admissions to continuing veterinary medical education) will be given priority.

Faculty from accredited veterinary schools are encouraged to apply for educational grants focusing on student assessment and feedback. The deadline to submit a grant proposal for 2022 ends September 30, 2022: 11:59 EST.
