Community Grants

The Center has expanded efforts to include grant funding for clinical and community nurses within Memphis and the Mid-South area who want to improve patient care and clinical outcomes in their area of practice. NEW: The grant cycle for the community grants is reopening in April, 2020. This is a unique opportunity for nurses without prior research or grant experience to receive funding and academic support to change nursing practice. A grant workshop, originally scheduled for April 1, will be rescheduled due to group gathering restrictions related to the coronavirus. Please watch our website and social media for updates.  Learn more here.
