American Nurses Foundation/Southern Nursing Research Society Grant

ANF is suspending the American Nurses Foundation 2020 Nursing Research Grant Program at this time. The current uncertainty and unprecedented challenges facing all sectors of the nursing profession during this global healthcare crisis mandate this pause.

They will re-evaluate this decision by August 1, 2020. No new applications can be accepted at the present time. Any applications in progress that are currently in the ANF on-line system will be held and will be available for updating and completion if and when they are able to re-open the grant program this year.

We apologize for any inconvenience this suspension may cause and are hopeful that we will have the resources and time necessary to reopen the program later this year.

The purpose of the American Nurses Foundation/Southern Nursing Research Society collaborative grant is to encourage qualified nurses to contribute to the advancement of nursing through research. Proposals for pilot and/or development research may be submitted for this grant.

Research Funding
Funds for this grant are provided by American Nurses Foundation and the Southern Nursing Research Society in the amount of $10,000.

Funds for this grant do not cover expenses incurred prior to the funding date.

Who can apply?
Nurse researchers of all levels and expertise both in academia and in clinical settings are encouraged to apply. Applications are assessed on contributions to advancing healthcare science and improving patient-centered care. 

In alignment with the Foundation’s strategic priorities, the Foundation is accepting applications in 10 strategic areas:

Nursing leadership/ management 
Health of Nurses
African American Nurses
Credentialing
Clinical
Interprofessional
Psychiatric/mental health
Women’s Health
Gerontology

Recipients should be members of SNRS at the time of application.  If there are no submissions from SNRS members, or none from SNRS members of sufficiently high quality, the Foundation/SNRS grant will not be awarded that cycle. 

Applicants must apply through the American Nurses Foundation.
