One of the purposes of this program is to increase the cadre of nurse scholars; thus, these scholars are anticipated to complete their doctoral degree in 3 years. As part of this grant, RWJF will provide $75,000 per student over three years, while the College of Nursing provides an additional $50,000 per student over three years. This total support is equivalent to $125,000 per student for the three year period. The funds will be used provide a yearly stipend, tuition, and cover miscellaneous expenses and research support. These fellowships will be used to recruit and support two exceptional students for full time study in our PhD program. Once recruited and enrolled, these students will work closely with a funded research mentor in the College of Nursing, and receive additional mentorship from a scientist in another discipline within our university.
