Every year, the Canadian Nurses Foundation awards approximately $25,000 in research grants to support clinical nurse-led research that advances nursing science. Nurse-led research that focuses on preventing the progression of disease, improving the patient experience, and helping people manage better in their home communities is critical for safe and quality health care.

Proposal budgets should reflect only costs directly related to research (e.g., laboratory materials and supplies, hiring research/technical assistants and related travel). The purchase of equipment, up to a maximum of 50% of the value of the first year’s budget, is permitted. Stipends for research trainees (e.g., graduate students, post-doctoral fellows) are allowed. Funds may not be used as salary for the grantees or for indirect costs of research (e.g., library, heat and light, office furniture, overhead, administrative charges and fees). We do not fund the costs of program delivery, incremental or otherwise.
