Healthcare Scholarship: American Cancer Society Doctoral Degree Scholarships in Cancer Nursing

Overview of the American Cancer Society Award

The American Cancer Society awards its Doctoral Degree Scholarships in Cancer Nursing to exceptional graduate students pursuing doctoral studies in cancer nursing research. The awards consist of $15,000 stipends, to cover up to two years of study, with the possibility of a two-year renewal.

The application deadline for the Doctoral Degree Scholarships in Cancer Nursing program is October 15th. Materials for the grant application are made available each year on July 1st. The Peer Review Meeting, to assess the applications, is held in January. Preliminary notification of the application results are given in March and grantees are notified in April. The stipend is then awarded beginning July 1st. Prospective candidates may view an informational webinar, which covers the program requirements as well as the online application process. A video copy of the webinar may be requested from the American Cancer Society.

To apply for the scholarship, applicants must be current graduate students working towards a doctoral degree in nursing. They must also be planning a career as a cancer nurse scientist, upon graduation. Applicants must be pursuing their studies at an accredited academic institution in the United States. The doctoral program must also be affiliated with a multidisciplinary program in cancer care or cancer control. Finally, the applicant must have prepared his or her course of study together with faculty who are experts in the applicant’s chosen field of specialization.

The applicant must meet the requirements for doctoral study and have been accepted into the program at the time of funding. All applicants must be registered nurses. The planned program of study must include at least 18 credit hours or 6 courses per year. In addition, the applicant should demonstrate relevant professional experience in oncology, involvement in professional organizations and related activities, clear professional goals, selection of an appropriate doctoral program, a plan of research that is methodologically appropriate and of demonstrable use to cancer patients, and a dedication to cancer nursing research.

The scholarship is meant to cover between one and four years of study. After two years, the scholarship recipient must apply to renew the scholarship. The stipend is intended to cover a student’s expenses, including tuition, subsistence (basic living expenses), local transportation costs, computers, books, journals, professional organization membership dues, relevant conferences and workshops, health/dental insurance and other research-related costs.
