The ANF Nursing Research Grants Program was founded 57 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 – such as hospice. Some require or give preference to membership in a specific nursing association. In addition, we encourage applicants to draw upon ANA’s research priorities and applicants choosing to utilize ANA’s NDNQI database will be eligible for up to an additional $3,000 to offset database management costs. Use of NDNQI data requires a separate application to the NDNQI program which must be completed and approved prior to the May 1, 2013 NRG application date.
The 2013 application process is now CLOSED. Awards will be announced September 1, 2013.
