Based at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at the University of California, Davis, the Betty Irene Moore Fellowships for Nurse Leaders and Innovators program is a national initiative to develop the next generation of nurse leaders and innovators. The fellowship program recognizes and advances early-career nursing scholars and innovators with excellent potential to accelerate leadership in nursing-science research, practice, education, policy, and entrepreneurship and position nurse-scholars to be full partners in improving healthcare delivery.
Funded by a five-year, $37.5 million award from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the three-year fellowship engages promising nurse-scholars in a journey of leadership development and mentorship as they complete an innovative project or study. Each year, approximately ten fellows will be selected to receive $450,000 over three years to support their engagement, while their home institution receives $50,000 to offset costs.
During the program, nurse leader fellows build skill and confidence in leading change; influencing others to make system changes that improve health and healthcare quality; building their professional networks; communicating effectively to diverse audiences; designing and executing high-value programs; and bringing new innovations to practice and policy.
Applications are now being accepted for the inaugural 2020 cohort of approximately ten nurse fellows from eligible institutions. Applications and all required materials must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. (PST) February 28 for full consideration. Applications received after the deadline will be considered on a space-available basis.
