PRESS RELEASE 2013-14 Scholarships now OPEN.
Last year we awarded a bumper number of Scholarships. It was a great year and we have the funds available for 2013-14 to continue this achievement. This is your chance to better both the nursing profession and yourself, with the ultimate aim of improving clinical care.
Leadership Scholarships of up to £15,000 are available for those who want to become leaders with the skills and self-confidence to contribute positively and with some significance to the rapidly changing world of healthcare.
Research Scholarships of up to £5,000 are available for scholars to undertake a course in research methods, research modules or a dissertation/thesis as part of an academic course of study. All of these must be able to demonstrate impact on patient care and be academically supervised or supported.
Travel Scholarships of up to £5,000 are a real opportunity to study practice elsewhere in the UK and/or overseas to enhance patient/user care in the UK. These scholarships are awarded for projects connected with the applicant’s field of work and which will benefit their patients/users and the professions more widely.
Research and Travel Scholarships are available to nurses, midwives and health visitors who have current registration with the NMC and who work and are resident in the UK. Leadership Scholarships are additionally available to Allied Health Professionals who have current registration with the HPC and work and are resident in the UK.
