Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity Awards

American Academy of Nursing Seeks Applications for Building Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity Awards Program

Deadline: January 9, 2007

The John A. Hartford Foundation (http://www.jhartfound.org/) recognizes the centrality of nurses to the care of older adults. In 2000, and in partnership with the American Academy of Nursing (http://www.aannet.org/ ), JAHF launched a multi-million-dollar Building Academic Geriatric Nursing Capacity Scholars Award Program to produce expert researchers, academicians, and practitioners who will lead the field of gerontology nursing and ultimately improve the care of the elderly. The program includes the distinguished Scholar & Fellow Awards Program.

The Scholar & Fellow Awards Program seeks applicants for the following scholarships and fellowships:

The Predoctoral Scholarship program is designed to support two years of doctoral work for nurses committed to careers in academic geriatric nursing. The program offers support at the
level of $30,000 in stipend and up to $20,000 in tuition and fee support for each of two years.

The Masters in Business Administration Scholarship program is designed to support one year of work toward a Masters in Business Administration or related degree. The program provides a total of $50,000 in support.

The Postdoctoral Fellowship program provides $60,000 of support for each of two years of advanced research training and mentorship designed to assist doctorally prepared nurses
committed to faculty careers in geriatric nursing.

The Mayday Fund provides an additional $5,000 award to selected candidates whose research includes the study of pain in the elderly.
