The RCN Foundation has today opened its autumn round of education and career development grants.

The education and career development grants available through the RCN Foundation aim to support those involved in nursing to develop their careers and improve the care they give to patients. Grants are used to undertake postgraduate qualifications and professional training. The Foundation will also be piloting its new RCN Foundation Leathersellers’ Grant, aimed at undergraduate nursing students.

The education grants are for up to £5000 and open to nurses, midwives and nursing support workers who will begin their study between January 2020 and January 2021.

Previously, grant applicants submitted paper applications. A new website will allow users to apply for grant funding online, as well as introduce new donation and regular giving facilities for the Foundation. Current funding calls for research development grants are also now available on the newly launched website.

‘Last year we had over 500 nursing professionals applying for an RCN Foundation education grant,’ added Ms Korea.

‘In response to this, we’re proud of our newly launched website which streamlines the grant process for hundreds of applicants and allows users to save time and money by applying online. ‘I strongly encourage anybody involved in nursing to take the time to see what’s available and apply for an RCN Foundation grant.
