Spring Grants Round Now Open

RCN Foundation launches spring round of funding opportunities

The RCN Foundation has opened its spring round of education and career development grants. These grants aim to support those involved in nursing and midwifery to develop their careers and improve the care they give to patients. Grants can be used to undertake undergraduate degrees, postgraduate qualifications and professional training. 

The RCN Foundation is an independent charity, and nursing and midwifery staff do not have to be an RCN member to receive their support. The education grants are for up to £5,000 and open to nurses, nursing associates, midwives and health care support workers who will begin their study between 01 September 2021 and 01 September 2022.

Deepa Korea, RCN Foundation Director said:

“The Foundation is proud to continue offering grants and awards to nurses, midwives and health care support workers to develop their careers and improve the care they give to their patients. Whether you are a nurse, midwife or a health care support worker, I strongly encourage you to take the time to see what we have available and apply for an RCN Foundation grant.

We know that these are extraordinary and challenging times for the profession, wherever they may work. We therefore remain more committed than ever to fulfilling our purpose of supporting and strengthening nursing now and in the years to ahead.”
