Grants of $75,000 over three years to USA higher education institutions with research-focused Ph.D. programs. The goal of the program is to mentor and provide leadership training to future nursing scholars. There will be an informational webinar on August 12. Funding is intended to advance science and discovery, strengthen nursing education, and bring transformational change to the nursing and health care field.
After receiving the award, selected schools will then choose the Ph.D. students to be designated as Future Nursing Scholars.
- Receive high-level mentoring from two key mentors - a primary nursing mentor and a secondary mentor outside of nursing - as well as from a broad network of national leaders in education, policy, innovation, health care, and their individual research or scholarship areas.
- Become part of a national network of nursing scholars from this program, fellows from other RWJF programs, and other scholar programs across the country.
- Be eligible to apply for a competitive $50,000 post-doctoral award, administered by the national program office, if they plan to assume a faculty position.
For the 2017 cohort, the program will support up to 75 scholars across the selected schools. Each scholar will receive $75,000 to be used over the three years of the program. This award must be matched by $50,000 in support from the school (which may be in-kind).
