RCN Foundation and FNF Travel Scholarship opportunities

The RCN Foundation and Florence Nightingale Foundation announce a new Travel Scholarships partnership.

A new partnership between the RCN Foundation and Florence Nightingale Foundation (FNF) has been announced offering 10 new Travel Scholarships of up to £5,000 each, over the next three years.

The new scholarships will initially be used to fund nurses and midwives exploring UK and international evidence for the improvement of care for patients with long term conditions, through enhancing clinical leadership.

“This is a new opportunity for nurses and midwives wishing to demonstrate the role of clinical leadership in the management of long term conditions.  We would be particularly interested in applicants who wish to travel and study new models of care, patient safety and improvement projects, and bring back evidence to improve the care of people with long term conditions in their local community and the wider UK.” said Elizabeth Robb, Chief Executive of the Florence Nightingale Foundation.

The RCN Foundation has awarded the grant to FNF who will oversee the administration of the Travel Scholarships and be the main contact for applications. 

Dinah Cox OBE, Head of RCN Foundation said; “We are delighted to fund these new scholarships and have no doubt that together, we will provide our nurses and midwives with an exceptional opportunity to help to improve overall clinical leadership. The RCN Foundation looks forward to working with the FNF, who have a strong history of delivering high quality travel scholarships.”

Applicants can find details on how to apply for the new Travel Scholarships by visiting the Florence Nightingale Foundation website; or by contacting the Administrator by emailing:
