The Mississippi Nurses Foundation provides scholarships, stipends and grants to nursing students and registered nurses throughout the state of Mississippi who are pursuing degrees in nursing.
The Mississippi Nurses Foundation is pleased to offer grants for scholarly activities by nurses to address health care problems in Mississippi. The two areas of interest are projects addressing major health problems in MS (e.g., infant mortality, obesity, teenage pregnancies, et al) and projects addressing evidenced-based or outcomes-based nursing in MS (i.e., clinical practice, education, or administration). Depending on the application, funds may be used for implementation and/or dissemination of study outcomes.
