Grants & Scholarships

To support nursing research and clinical practice efforts that contribute to the improvement of the quality of life for children and their families, the NAPNAP Foundation strives to raise money and provide opportunities for academic advancement and research in the nursing community. The result is a series of grants and scholarships that we make available to NAPNAP members. Check out our past winners.

We are pleased to be able to offer NAPNAP members the chance to apply for three advanced nursing research grants in 2019. Areas of focus include: childhood obesity, behavioral health or general child health (adolescent transition of care, rural/community health delivery of care, etc.).
