National League for Nursing: Education Research Grants 

The NLN Research in Nursing Education Grants Program supports high-quality studies that contribute to the development of the science of nursing education. The NLN-funded grants promote diversity of research topics and support investigators who demonstrate rigor and innovative approaches to advance the field of nursing education research. All NLN research grants relate to the NLN Priorities for Research in Nursing Education.

The NLN is deeply committed to supporting beginning researchers as well as accomplished nursing education scholars. The NLN awards approximately five (5) research proposals annually up to a maximum of $30,000 each to NLN individual members and faculty of NLN member schools. Funding is provided by the NLN and through endowments and donations to the NLN Foundation for Nursing Education. Funds will not cover expenses incurred prior to the funding date. The NLN will disburse funds by September 1st of the year awarded.

Principal investigators must be current NLN members, either through their school or through individual dues payment. With the exception of the PI, members of the research team do not need to be NLN members.
All studies must relate to one or more of the NLN Priorities for Research in Nursing Education.

The NLN encourages collaborative efforts between research doctorates and practice doctorates. For more, see NLN’s Vision Statement on Doctoral Faculty Collaboration in Nursing Education.

This grant funding does not support nursing staff development research.
