The Oncology Nursing Society Foundation is seeking Letters of Intent from beginning researchers for its mentored Research Career Development Award.
Through the annual program, grants of up to $20,000 will be awarded to support short-term oncology research training and mentorship, with each fellow receiving up to $18,000 to cover related expenses; the mentor (or the mentor's institution) will receive a $2,000 award in the form of an unrestricted honorarium to cover his/her consultative or research-related expenses and/or other institutional costs.
To be eligible, applicants must be a registered nurse with an interest in oncology and have a completed PhD degree in nursing or a related discipline. The awards are available for beginning researchers (i.e., up to eight years after completing a PhD degree with no history of research funding as a principal investigator).
Letters of Intent must be received no later than June 1. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit an application by July 1, 2018.
