RWJF Releases 2018 Future of Nursing Scholars RFP

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has released a Request for Proposals for its 2018 Future of Nursing Scholars program, an annual program designed to develop the next generation of PhD-prepared nurse leaders committed to long-term careers that advance science and discovery, strengthen nursing education, and bring transformational change to nursing and health care.

The three-year program aims to ensure that the nation has a diverse, well-trained leadership and workforce capable of building a culture of health in which good health flourishes across all demographics and everyone has access to affordable, quality health care. Future of Nursing Scholars form long-lasting relationships and networks with other scholars in the program, as well as with scholars and fellows in other RWJF programs.

Schools with research-focused PhD programs in nursing are eligible to apply. The school must be committed to facilitating the scholar’s completion of the PhD in three academic years. Selected schools will choose the PhD students to be designated as Future of Nursing Scholars. Selected scholars must be United States citizens or permanent residents at the time of award. In addition, scholars selected by the school must be committed to completing their PhD program in three academic years.

For the 2018 cohort, the program will support up to seventy-five scholars. Each scholar will receive $75,000 to be used over the three years of the program. The award must be matched by $50,000 in support from the school, which may be in-kind.

See the RWJF website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: September 14, 2017
