Please see research grant guidelines for details on format and content of research grant applications.
CGNA offers scholarships each year to support students enrolled in a nursing program focused on gerontological nursing.
The Ann C. Beckingham Scholarship is provided to support outstanding Registered Nurses undertaking further education in a graduate degree program, preferably in the field of gerontological nursing, including Nurse Practitioner programs that focus on the care of older adults.
