The Florence Nightingale Foundation research and travel 2015-16 scholarships now open

29th July 2015

The Florence Nightingale Foundation raises funds to provide scholarships for nurses and midwives to enable them, through study, to promote innovation in practice and to extend knowledge and skills to meet changing needs.

Last year the Foundation awarded a large number of scholarships and there are even more funds available for 2015-16.  This is your chance to better both the nursing profession and yourself, with the ultimate aim of improving clinical care. Research scholarships of up to £5,000 are available for nurses to undertake a course in research methods, research modules or a dissertation/thesis as part of an academic course of study. All of these must be able to demonstrate impact on patient care and be academically supervised or supported.

Travel scholarships of up to £5,000 are a real opportunity to study practice elsewhere in the UK and/or overseas to enhance patient/user care in the UK. These scholarships are awarded for projects connected with the applicant’s field of work and which will benefit their patients/users and the profession more widely. Research and travel scholarships are available to nurses and midwives who have current registration with the NMC and who work and are resident in the UK.
