The ANF Nursing Research Grants Program was founded 59 years ago to encourage the research career development of nurses. This program continues to grow with contributions for nursing research, from organizations and individuals. These donations support scientific research for advancing the practice of nursing, promoting health and preventing disease.
Each year, through our Nursing Research Grants program, ANF provides funds to beginner and experienced nurse researchers to conduct studies that contribute toward the advancement of nursing science and the enhancement of patient care. Listed below are the specific grants available. Some have research area requirements, and some require or give preference to membership in a specific nursing association. All applications must be completed by 11:59 p.m. on May 1, 2014.
The American Nurses Foundation is excited to announce the expansion of our Nursing Research Grants program with the support of $30,000 in funding provided by the American Nurses Credentialing Center to support clinically based research. To support improving the quality of care provided in clinical settings and the integral role nurses play in designing better care, the Foundation will increase its funding of studies of systematic, data-guided activities designed to bring about improvement in healthcare delivery with two (2) $5,000 grants to beginning researchers and two (2) $10,000 grants to experienced researchers, with one of each to be awarded to a clinical researcher at a Magnet facility.
