AWHONN's commitment to nursing research and scholarship is reflected in our 25-year history of funding nursing research and promoting evidence-based nursing care. Our program is designed primarily for researchers whose efforts are on the beginning developments of a program of research. Awards are granted to researchers whose proposals investigate variables relevant to women's health, obstetric, or neonatal nursing. Studies that are clinically focused and outcome based are a priority. Projects that focus on the nurse's role in delivering cost-effective care in these subspecialties are encouraged and will also be considered.
