Research Grant Program

ISONG Research Initiative – Donations

Fostering scientific research in genetics is an important part of ISONG's mission. In 2014, ISONG embarked on a Nursing Research Directed Donations Campaign. ISONG, as an organization, will help to fund a research grant with the support of the members.

You are encouraged to donate what you can to keep this important initiative going. Donations will help to provide these Research Grant Awards. Click here to donate or members can donate along with renewing their membership online. Thank you for your support!

Purpose
The purpose of the annual ISONG Nursing Research Grant awards is to support research related to the mission of ISONG, specifically, to promote genetic/genomic nursing practice and for the development of genetic/genomic nursing science.  Grant funding may be used as "seed" money for conducting a pilot study, or, for support of an ongoing research investigation that will contribute to the science or practice of genetic/genomic nursing.  Awarding of grant funding is competitive and will be determined through peer review of proposals by members of the ISONG Research Committee.

Eligibility:  At ISONG scientific merit of grant applications is the primary criteria for funding decisions.

To apply for a grant an applicant must be a member of ISONG in good standing.

Applicants with large foundation or government funding will not be considered for ISONG funding opportunities.

Application Process and Deadlines.

The Research Grant Applications for the 2016 year are closed. Awards will be announced and presented at the 2016 ISONG Congress.

ISONG's Research Committee are responsible for selection and have submitted the names of the award recipients to the Board of Directors for final approval.
