Fostering scientific research in genetics is an important part of ISONG’s mission. ISONG members are eligible to apply a Nursing Research grant award. Submitted proposals are selected for funding based upon successful peer review of the application by the ISONG Research Committee. ISONG's Research Committee are responsible for selection and submit the names of the award recipients to the Board of Directors for final approval.
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.
- 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.
In 2017 the support received from our sponsors provided for three ISONG Nursing Research Grant Awards. With the additional contributions from ISONG members who donated to the Nursing Research Donations Campaign to support their fellow members, an additional grant was awarded at the 2017 ISONG Congress in Reston, Virginia USA.
