AHNA offers a competitive research grant for $5000.
The Research Grant is available to current AHNA members who are conducting holistic nursing research and have been members of AHNA for at least one year. Eligibility includes doctoral students who wish to apply for funds to support their research.
Those receiving the AHNA research grant funds are required to submit a progress report on an annual basis with a final report at the conclusion of the study and maintain a current membership with AHNA. Recipients are encouraged to attend the annual national AHNA conference to receive their awards. Winners are also encouraged to attend a subsequent conference to present their research findings, and are encouraged to publish the results of their work.
This award is supported by individual and group donations through AHNA’s Research Fund.
Grants are competitive and awarded through the AHNA Special Recognition and Grant Awards Committee which includes at least one member of the Research Committee.
All applications and proposals are reviewed by the Committee members and the AHNA Board of Directors.
