Future of Nursing Scholars 2014 Call for Proposals
Deadline: April 15, 2014, 3:00 p.m. ET
The goal of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Future of Nursing Scholars program is to develop the next generation of PhD-prepared nurse leaders who are committed to long-term leadership careers that advance science and discovery, strengthen nursing education, and bring transformational change to nursing and health care.
The Future of Nursing Scholars program is part of the Foundation’s Human Capital Portfolio, which aims to ensure that the nation has a diverse, well-trained workforce to advance a culture of health across this country, in which good health flourishes across all demographics, where being healthy and staying that way are esteemed social values, and where everyone has access to affordable, quality health care. Building a well-prepared cadre of faculty, researchers, and leaders is key to meeting these goals.
Schools with research-focused PhD programs in nursing are eligible to apply for the program. The school will then choose the PhD students to be designated as Future of Nursing Scholars. The scholars must be committed to completing their PhD program in three years. Program alumni who plan to obtain a faculty position immediately after graduation will be eligible to apply for a one-year competitive postdoctoral award. The Future of Nursing Scholars will form long-lasting relationships and networks with other scholars in this program and other RWJF programs that will situate them as a formidable group of health care leaders.
For the inaugural 2014 cohort, the program will support up to 10 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).
In this round of funding, funds may be provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation or one of the following funders:
Independence Blue Cross Foundation.
United Health Foundation
North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System+
Rhode Island Foundation.
