RWJF Future of Nursing Scholars

This funding opportunity for Ph.D. students is part of the RWJF's goal of creating a diverse cadre of Ph.D. prepared nurses who are committed to a long-term leadership career; advancing science and discovery through research; strengthening nursing education; and furthering transformational change in nursing and health care. The Future of Nursing Scholars program advances the recommendation of the Institute of Medicine to double the number of doctorally-prepared nurses in the United States.
