2014 Claire M. Fagin Fellow Award Program
The Claire M. Fagin Fellow Award Program focuses on building academic gerontological nursing capacity through the development of leaders in gerontological nursing. The program provides for a 2-year fellowship for advanced research training and mentorship designed to assist doctorally prepared nurses committed to academic careers in gerontological nursing. To facilitate this effort, the program provides focused study and substantial networking opportunities among National Hartford Centers of Gerontological Nursing Excellence Patricia G. Archbold Scholars, Claire M. Fagin Fellows and mentors as well as colleagues in other fields. Claire M. Fagin Fellows, in collaboration with their mentors, will design and implement individual professional development plans that will support them in developing new competencies and enhanced effectiveness as an academic leader and researcher.
Awards will total $120,000 ($60,000 per annum) to each selected Fagin Fellow candidate with the requirement that 10% of that amount be contributed by the institution where the fellow is located. The institution’s contribution may be in the form of tuition waivers, research assistantships, teaching assistantships, grants-in-aid or scholarships. Neither in-kind support nor student loans are acceptable as matching funds. No indirect costs are allowed to the school and waivers of these indirect costs cannot be considered matching funds.
The Mayday Fund provides an additional $5,000 award to selected candidates whose research focuses on pain in older persons.
Fellow applicants must:
be doctorally prepared registered nurses (not including DNP)
hold degree(s) in nursing (undergraduate and/or masters)
be United States citizens or permanent U.S. residents
have potential to develop into independent investigators
demonstrate potential for long-term contributions to gerontological nursing.
If selected, Fellows must:
devote fulltime effort to the research project and professional development plan. While some academic commitments may be maintained, these should be relevant to the Fellow's research and study, sufficiently minimal so as not to reduce full time equivalency in the fellowship program and not be in conflict with the work the Fellow is undertaking. Where such activities are to be undertaken, they must be carefully and fully described in the application.
attend NHCGNE’s Annual Leadership Conference as well as the Gerontological Society of Americas (GSA) Annual Scientific Meeting. (Mentors are strongly encouraged to attend the Leadership Conference.) Both meetings are held annually in November.
The selected institution is a significant consideration in the application review and selection process. It is important that the school chosen have the resources and capacity to support the Fellow in his or her fellowship plan. NHCGNE has developed a survey on graduate programs that have an emphasis on gerontological nursing that provides a rich snapshot of programs offered.

Call for Applications: Sexual Medicine Society of North America SMSNA Scholars in Sexuality Research Grants Program
Deadline: January 31, 2014
The Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) proudly announces “The SMSNA Scholars in Sexuality Research Grants Program.” This unique program offers young investigators who are interested in sexuality research the opportunity to obtain funding to support their research while engaged in qualifying research in sexuality.
It is the purpose of the SMSNA to increase public awareness of healthy sexuality and sexual problems, to foster the finest care for individuals suffering from sexual debility, and to encourage scholarship and research in human sexuality. It is our hope that this program will encourage young people to become interested in sexuality research and make it a focal point of their careers.
Funding is available for graduate or medical students, residents in graduate medical education training programs, and post-doctoral/post-residency fellows. Because sexual medicine is a multi-disciplinary field and sex impacts almost every aspect of human endeavor in some way, we encourage applications from aspiring researchers representing diverse backgrounds including but not limited to urology, psychology, psychiatry, gynecology, internal medicine, geriatrics, public health, physiology, genetics, molecular biology, social work, and law.
The size of awards will be commensurate with the experience of the scholar, the proposed duration of funding, and the scope and quality of the proposed research project. Maximum award amounts will be:
1. Medical/Graduate School Level: $3,000 for direct research costs and/or living expenses while the scholar conducts a Summer research project.
2. Resident: $5,000 to subsidize lab expenses during a lab year for a resident or post-doctoral fellow.
3. Post-Doctoral/Fellowship: $7,500 to subsidize a mentored one year fellowship in sexuality and sexual health. Smaller grants may be considered to subsidize research expenses for a post-doctoral fellow’s independent research projects with an established mentor as co-PI.
• Proof of grant expenditure is required at the end of fiscal year.
• Grant not intended to be the primary source of funding for travel, lodging, meals, or other costs for SMSNA meetings, but may supplement payment for these expenses. The primary purpose of the grant is to support research related expenses.
• The grant may supplement the grantee’s salary if not already fully funded.
Applicants are required to submit:
• A completed application form by the specified deadline.
• A detailed description of the research question divided into 4 sections, addressing the specific aims of the research, the background of the problem being addressed, preliminary data, and an outline of the proposed investigation including potential alternatives and problems that may be encountered. We recommend applications that are 5-8 pages in length for a medical school or residency applicant, and 8-10 pages for a fellow level applicant.
• A letter of support from a faculty mentor
• Two additional letters of recommendation, one of whom must be an SMS member.
• Provide documentation regarding other available funds (if any) supporting the proposed project, cosigned by the mentor.
• Include an estimated time to complete the proposed study.
The SMSNA encourages potential scholars to seek out mentors who are senior members of the SMSNA actively involved in sexuality research. Research under a suitable mentor outside of the society may be acceptable in some extraordinary circumstances for appropriate projects. If a proposed mentor is not a member of the SMSNA, we strongly encourage that s/he join the SMSNA prior to inception of the research project.
Final decisions on approval for funding will be made by the SMSNA grant disbursement committee based primarily on the merit of the proposed study, as well as applicant and mentor credentials, and the feasibility of the proposed study. All funded applicants will receive membership in the SMSNA at no charge for 2 years.
Initial disbursement of funds will occur in early June for investigator awards that are intended to subsidize a trainee’s summer research project. Funds for year-long projects will be disbursed July 1 to coincide with the start of the academic year and January 1 to correspond to the midpoint of the academic year. Customized disbursement of funds for projects that do not conform to these time-tables can be arranged at the request of the applicant/mentor and the discretion of the SMSNA grants disbursement committee.
Interim progress reports to the SMSNA grant disbursement committee are required for continuation of funding. At a minimum, a 2 page report at the midpoint of the research time frame will be required, with additional follow-up points required for some projects at the discretion of the grant’s committee. The SMSNA will be credited as sponsor in any presentations and publications that result from the research project. Grant recipients will be required to present abstracts based on their research at either the Winter SMSNA research meeting or the American Urological Association annual meeting. Recipients are further encouraged to publish their results in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
Completed applications should be sent to:
