The Oncology Nursing Society Foundation is accepting applications from registered nurses for its APN and DNP Student Fellowship program.
The annual program provides financial support to students enrolled in an MSN or DNP program, with the goal of helping them accomplish work in areas of cancer prevention, care, or control, as outlined in the ONS Research Agenda; supporting their capstone project or thesis in oncology; and advancing evidence-based practice in oncology care.
Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to assist with costs to complete the master's or DNP capstone or thesis project. The fellowship is not intended to support tuition expenses. It is expected that projects will require a minimum of sixty hours of work for completion. Funding cannot be used for work completed prior to approval of fellowship.
To be considered, projects must fall in one of the content areas in the current ONS Research Agenda, including interventions to adopt/maintain health behaviors; interventions to increase cancer screening, with an emphasis on underserved/understudied populations; cancer-related symptoms and side effects; late effects of cancer treatment; end of life care; psychosocial and family care; nursing sensitive patient outcomes; and translational science.
In addition, all applicants must have a mentor whose work clearly aligns with the planned project and/or that of the ONS Research Agenda.
Registered nurses enrolled in an MSN or DNP program at an accredited school of nursing are eligible to apply.
