Geriatrics Scholarships

Here are some of the Geriatrics scholarships on our site for which you may qualify.

Claire M. Fagin Fellow Award Program

Eligibility Fellow applicants must: Be doctorally prepared registered nurses (not including DNP) Hold degree(s) in nursing (undergraduate and/or masters) Be United States citizens or permanent U.S. residents Have potential to develop into independent investigators Demonstrate potential for long-term contributions to gerontological nursing At an institution that is a member of NHCGNE If selected, Fellows must: Devote full-time effort to the research project and professional development plan. While some academic commitments may be maintained, these should be relevant to the Fellow's research and study, sufficiently minimal so as not to reduce full time equivalency in the fellowship program and not be in conflict with the work the Fellow is undertaking. Where such activities are to be undertaken, they must be carefully and fully described in the application. Attend NHCGNE’s Annual Leadership Conference as well as the Gerontological Society of America (GSA) Annual Scientific Meeting. (Mentors are strongly encouraged to attend the Leadership Conference.) Both meetings are held annually in November. Institution: Must be a member of NHCGNE. If a Fellow candidate is successful the award will total $120,000 ($60,000 per annum) with the requirement that 10% of that amount be contributed by the institution where the fellow is located. The institution’s contribution may be in the form of tuition waivers, research assistantships, teaching assistantships, grants-in-aid or scholarships. Neither in-kind support nor student loans are acceptable as matching funds. No indirect costs are allowed to the school and waivers of these indirect costs cannot be considered matching funds.
