Dear colleagues of the CNHH, this will interest many of you.
All the best,
Dr. Susan Armstrong-Reid wrote the CNHH in their capacity as Chair of the AAHN Research Grants Committee to ensure that the Network is updated on recent changes to AAHN research grants available to scholars of nursing, healthcare and humanitarianism at all stages of their careers. As a scholar researching the ethics of humanitarian nursing, Dr. Armstrong-Reid is particularly interested in forging transnational links to provide a more sophisticated and critical understanding of the development of the humanitarian system and continuing transformation required to meet even basic human security. The challenges only continue to grow, taxing the humanitarian system well beyond its current capacity to respond.
There are now three awards: H-15 Grant (an early career research grant for scholars who hold a research doctorate granted within the last 8 years); H-21 Grant (for mid-to-senior scholars with a publication record); and the H-31 Pre-Doctoral Research Grant.
Please note: the deadline for submissions has been changed to May 1, 2024, and successful candidates will now be notified on July 1, 2024. The committee hopes that this later due date works better within the academic year for both faculty and students.
Moreover, the guidelines for the pre-doctoral research grant were extensively revised to provide a clearer picture of what the committee expected to be included and the consequent steps students should take prior to submitting their proposals. It was the committee’s belief that the new guidelines might be beneficial for students applying for larger research grants. A more detailed description of the eligibility criteria for all three grants and the guidelines for submitting a proposal in 2024 are available at: https://www.aahn.org/research-grants.
As one of its goals for 2023-24, the committee determined to reach out to our international colleagues to encourage them and their students to consider applying for these grants. We believe it is important to bring fresh transnational perspective and innovative methodologies that span disciplines to foster a more sophisticated critical understanding of how nursing’s past shaped its future direction in healthcare. The committee welcomes proposals that span historical time periods and a diverse range of topics.
In addition, AAHN also provides opportunities to publish articles based upon larger research projects in Nursing History Review or present papers at its 2024 Convention to be held September 19-21, 2024, in Milwaukee.
All the best for 2023-24 academic year and in in your own important and very salient research endeavours.
