Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation – Knowledge Sharing Support Award
NSHRF recognizes that opportunities arise to share health research knowledge in new and innovative ways. The Knowledge Sharing Support Award (KSSA) is designed to support further dissemination activities that benefit knowledge users and/or decision makers within the health system.
Nursing Research Fund
Nursing Research Fund The Nursing Research Fund was established in 1979 to support research in nursing practice, management and education; enhance the distribution and discussion of research findings; advance opportunities for the debate of significant issues in nursing and further excellence in nursing practice, education and research. The fund also covers consultation on proposal preparation and statistical advice. Dalhousie nursing faculty, registered nurses practicing in Nova Scotia or pursuing research as a graduate student are eligible for these grants. Awards range from $1500 to $5000.
Operating Grants are awarded to conduct a study or a pilot study. Funding would be for all direct costs, such as equipment, photocopying, secretarial services and statistical consultation. An operating grant is held for one or two years, although a two-year applicant must submit a progress report to the Scientific Officer nine months after the first grant is received.
Development Grants are awarded for the development of an innovative idea into a feasible research proposal. The applicant must explain the innovative nature of the proposed work, describe and give rational for the resources they require. A Developmental Grant is held for one year.
Research Dissemination Grants are awarded to Dalhousie University graduate students and faculty presenting at researched-based professional development sessions.
Proposals for Operating and Development Grants are evaluated on three criteria: (1) relevance and significance to the purpose of the fund, (2) scientific merit, and (3) academic or professional preparation of the applicant. Applications are evaluated subject to ethical review from the appropriate agencies.
Submission deadlines are October 1, February 1 and June 1 each year. Applications are received through the Web page or available from:
