NP History Grants

Funding Nurse Practitioners (NPs) Who Seek to Preserve NP History

The NP profession's rich history paints a picture of the great successes NPs have achieved and the invaluable contributions they have made to the health of patients nationwide. Preserving documents on a national and international level will help increase the visibility of this information and serve as inspiration for future successes. Now is your opportunity to help gather and preserve NP history by taking advantage of this American Association of Nurse Practitioners® (AANP) grant opportunity.

The AANP National NP History Grant award is a funding opportunity for a research or scholarly project focused on the historical foundations of the NP movement at a national or international level. Grants are available to AANP members of any type (including student or associate members) in good standing who demonstrate expertise — or interest in — historical research. History projects should contribute novel findings to the body of existing knowledge as new, original research related to and of importance to the NP role.

Awardees may receive up to $5,000 in grant funding. Only completed applications will be accepted and reviewed.
