American Psychiatric Nurses association Research Grants The American Psychiatric Nurses Association Research Grants program provides funding to enhance scientific contributions that advance the knowledge and practice of psychiatric-mental health nursing. This year, we are accepting proposals in two categories: Category 1: Research studies to generate new knowledge to advance psychiatric mental health nursing Category 2: Evidence-based practice change or quality improvement projects to apply evidence to practice Funded by the APNA Foundation Committee, these awards are intended to seed new investigators who are beginning their scholarly careers and vary from $1,000 - $10,000 per award. Priority will be given to investigators who are early in their careers and who have not previously had major intra- or extramural funding.
