William & Mary and Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) began exploring whether EVMS should become the William & Mary School of Medicine on July 25, 2012. President Taylor Reveley, established a steering committee chaired by Provost Michael R. Halleran to coordinate the review process for William & Mary. The steering committee's task was to analyze whether and in which way(s) the College could be strengthened by having EVMS as part of or affiliated with the College, and to advise the president on the likely risks and rewards involved in any decision.
May, 2013 - Research RFPs Issued
Proposals are due July 1, 2013 for the EVMS/W&M Collaborative Grant Program. The program seeks research projects involving collaborations by researchers from William & Mary and Eastern Virginia Medical School. The requests for proposals were issued at a May 14 retreat held at William & Mary's Sadler Center. Proposals may focus on research of any sort, but the projects must be collaborative, involving researchers based at both institutions.
It is anticipated that around eight projects will be funded at around $10,000 each, although the funding amounts, as well as the number of projects, may vary.
