FUNDING OPPORTUNITIESOncology Nursing Society Foundation Research Grants
The Oncology Nursing Society Foundation is accepting applications for the 2013 Research Grant funding cycle. These grant awards are designed to support oncology nursing research conducted by beginning and experienced researchers. The principal investigator must be actively involved in some aspect of cancer patient care, education, or research, and be PhD- or DNSc-prepared or a student working toward one of those research degrees. Funding preference is given to projects that involve nurses in the design and conduct of the research activity and that promote theoretically based oncology practice. Membership in ONS is not required for eligibility.
In addition, the ONS Foundation has partnered with other organizations to offer the following four grants. All of these specific grants use the RE01 Research Grant application. Please indicate on the RE01 grant application which, if any, of the specific grants you would like to be considered for:
