CRE Grant Program for Doctoral Students
The CRE Grant Program for Doctoral Students provides funding for scientific research projects related to nursing regulation and policy. It will be funded by NCSBN’s Center for Regulatory Excellence (CRE) Grant Program and will award up to $30,000 grants to candidates – one grant per each funding cycle.
Interested candidates will submit an application that reflects the short/long-term research objectives of NCSBN. The call for proposals will be sent out biannually in April and October; the first call will be sent for the April funding cycle. Those receiving the regulatory scholars grant program will have two years to complete the study. It is expected that all study results will be published and presented to national and international audiences.
Interested nursing or nursing-related doctoral students (DNP or PhD) will submit application materials to NCSBN for consideration.
Be sure to read the CRE Grant Proposal Guidelines for more information.
