The mission of Sigma Theta Tau International is to advance world health and celebrate nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service. To that end, STTI is accepting applications for its 2016 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, is based on the quality of the proposed research, the future promise of the applicant, and the applicant’s research budget. Other aspects being equal, applications from novice researchers who have received no other national research funds are encouraged and will receive preference.
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.
See the Sigma Theta Tau International website for complete grant details, eligibility criteria, and application instructions.
