The Hartford Award for Research and Practice for Doctor of Nursing Practice Project Funding (D.N.P. HARP) is a small grant that supports qualified advanced practice nursing students whose final project focuses on improving the health and health care of older adults.

The purpose of the D.N.P. HARP is to support students’ clinical scholarship in the OHSU School of Nursing D.N.P. program during a critical phase of their education. It is awarded to D.N.P. students to help strengthen a project that may lead to better health outcomes for older adults. Projects that concentrate on health disparities related to aging or strategies to improve the health status of older adults in diverse or rural populations will receive special consideration.

To qualify, the D.N.P. student must be enrolled in or have completed NURS 703A “DNP Project Planning”. The student’s Project Chair must provide a letter of support with confirmation of the estimated timeline and an endorsement of the HARP financial support.

Up to $3000 will be awarded to accepted applicants. The request for applications here, Hartford Award for Research and Practice for Doctor of Nursing Practice Project Funding, outlines the application process.

The HARP is administered by the Hartford Center of Gerontological Excellence (HCGE). Please contact Marilyn Sanguinetti, the HCGE project administrator, for more information.
