The Foundation is outstanding at developing innovative curriculum for nurses such as in the leadership scholarship. The inspiring curriculum pushes people, grows skills and it is at the edge of contemporary leadership education.
Our leadership development programmes create opportunities for scholars to explore and discover their own leadership style and develop the essential skills to be a courageous and confident leader. Nurses and midwives registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) are eligible to apply for our fully funded scholarships. However we also welcome applicants outside the UK with an independent funding source. For more information on our leadership scholarships please view our brochure FNF Leadership Development Opportunities Brochure

All leadership scholars are required to complete an improvement project and are required to publish and present this at the end of their scholarship year. The maximum funding available for each scholar is £10,000 to fund both the core and bespoke programmes.
