Innovations in Research, Education, and Practice Dean’s Small Grants Program

Supporting faculty's innovative pilot studies that hold promise for advancing nursing science, education, and practice is a high priority of the School. Applications for funds are reviewed by external peer reviewers with matching expertise who set high standards for rigor and quality. Proposals are evaluated for significance, innovation, sustainability, and synergism with School and University priorities. The qualifications of faculty investigators and the feasibility of studies are considered carefully to maximize the probability of long-term success. Interprofessional collaboration is highly encouraged as it reflects both the University's and the nation's value of team science.
