Society of Gastroenterology Nurses and Associates Research Grants
The deadline for submission is February 15, July 15 and October 15.
The SGNA Research Committee was formed to encourage research in the field of gastroenterology. Research is a way of addressing ideas and questions that arise in the course of daily practice. The results might convince you to make changes in your practice, and could also benefit others. Research may be done individually or as a collaborative effort. Grant applications are reviewed by the SGNA Research Committee for appropriateness, compliance with criteria and research suggestions by experts. Grants which meet the requirements are presented to the SGNA Board of Directors for funding approval.
SGNA Research Priorities include, but are not limited to:
Expanded Role of the GI Practitioner
Nursing intervention related to GI disease processes
Research grant criteria:
- Investigators must be able to complete data collection within one year of receiving the grant
