Applications for Scholar and Fellow Award Programs

The NHCGNE Scholar and Fellow Award Programs* were created to increase academic gerontological nursing capacity in the United States by increasing the number of well-prepared gerontological nursing faculty. NHCGNE Scholars & Fellows, in collaboration with their mentors, implement a tailored professional development plan which supports development of new competencies and enhanced effectiveness as an academic leader. The program also focuses on leadership skills development.

The National Hartford Center of Gerontological Nursing Excellence with the support of the John A. Hartford Foundation will be accepting applications for a single scholar/fellow award in 2015 for individuals at institutions that are members of NHCGNE:

  • The Claire M. Fagin Fellow Award Program provides for a 2-year fellowship for advanced research training and mentorship designed to assist doctorally-prepared nurses committed to faculty careers in gerontological nursing

Please feel free to contact Penny Roberts at proberts@geron.org if additional information is needed.
Applications may be submitted beginning October 1, 2015.
