In 2011 the International Glaucoma Association (IGA) announced a grants programme in collaboration with The Royal College of Nursing. It is pleased to offer Nursing Research Awards up to the value of £30,000 in 2014.
The deadline for applications is 28 February 2014.
This is an award to facilitate research into supporting patients during their glaucoma care. The IGA encourages patient orientated research and research directly concerned with the improvement of the management of glaucoma.
Applicants must be individual nurses or departments based in the UK or Eire.
The maximum award will be £30,000 but the awards committee welcomes applications for lesser amounts with the awards being made based on the quality of the application and the expected benefit to patients with glaucoma.
The awards are normally awarded annually.
Please note that the application process is administered by the IGA in collaboration with the Royal College of Nursing. The conditions of the grants will be an agreement between the IGA and the successful applicant.
