Students are not eligible to compete for this grant, but it will give you an idea about what the application looks like.
The Supplemental Readings for this module include several locations where grants can be obtained for EBP quality improvement projects. The AHRQ and Robert Wood Johnson grants offer some EBP grants. However, the first two links are designed for EBP projects. There is a page of Funding Opportunities in the DNP Resources folder.
For this assignment, review the TONL and Helene Fuld Health Trust National Institute for Evidence-based Practice sites below and select one to utilize to develop a Funding Application for the work you have done in this course.
