Internal Awards

Funding Awards for Studies

There are two funding opportunities to support nursing research by UVAHS nurses! Applications are accepted during a specified period each year and recipients are announced at the Evidence-based Practice Symposium. For either award, applications may be made for an individual- or team-based project at any stage of completion, from initial proposal through publication of findings. If awarded, funds may be used either to conduct the nursing research project itself, or help disseminate research findings.
