Call for Submissions:
Nurse Practitioner History Research Scholar Award

The Bjoring History Center invites applications for the Nurse Practitioner History Research Scholar Award for 2021. Its goal is to advance historical scholarship on practitioners and disseminate it to an international audience.

For the third year in a row, a donor has made a generous gift of $5,000. The deadline for proposals is June 1, 2021, with the intention that the recipient use the award the following academic year.

Eligibility: Any student pursuing a DNP or PhD, or an established scholar. This award is not limited to nursing scholars; other historians of medicine and health care are encouraged to apply.

Applicants must provide a full research proposal, including:

    • A concise statement of the research they wish to conduct
    • A narrative describing the project, within the context of the present state of historical knowledge, including background, sources and appropriate citations
    • Identification of resources to be used
    • An itemized budget detailing how the funds will be used
    • A current CV

Send proposals and supporting materials to: Dominique Tobbell, PhD, Director of the Bjoring Center for Nursing Historical Inquiry at the University of Virginia, at [email protected]. Notification of award will be made by July 1, 2021.

The recipient must agree to provide a research presentation to selected faculty (and the donor, if desired) upon completion of the project. In addition, they must produce a submission-ready paper for publication and a letter of thanks for the donor.
