The Rehabilitation Nursing Foundation (RNF) is a tax-exempt foundation established in 1976 by the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN). RNF has six grants available totaling over $34,500.
The Rehabilitation Nursing Foundation offers $30,000 in the form of multiple grants for research and EBP projects that address the clinical practice, educational or administrative dimensions of rehabilitation nursing. The New Investigator Research Award grants up to $10,000 for nurses who are novice researchers. Two EBP Project Grants (New Investigator awards up to $1500 and Fellow awards up to $2500) are to promote the translation of research into practice. Up to two Research Fellow Grants to support experienced researchers will be awarded from the remaining funds.
RNF also cosponsors two grants. The Sigma Theta Tau International grant offers $4,500 for one nursing research project related to rehabilitation nursing.
