The mission of Sigma Theta Tau International is to advance global health and celebrate nursing excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, and service. To that end, STTI is accepting applications for its 2017 STTI/Doris Bloch Research Award.
Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to encourage nurses to contribute to the advancement of nursing through research. The allocation of funds, which are provided by a gift to the honor society's Research Endowment from the Doris Bloch estate, will be based on the quality of the proposed research, the future promise of the applicant, and the applicant's research budget. Applications from novice researchers who have received no other national research funds are encouraged and will receive preference, other aspects being equal.
To be eligible, applicants must be a registered nurse with current license and hold a master's or doctoral degree or be enrolled in a doctoral program. Preference will be given to STTI members, other qualifications being equal.
All applications must be submitted via the online submission system, a link to which will be available in April.
See the the society's website for complete eligibility criteria and application instructions.
