Scholarships & Fellowships

Nursing Scholarships

We offer an educational advancement program for nurses to receive funds for tuition, fees and books to offset their expenses from attending an accredited bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral program in nursing.

Transformation Scholarship Program

The Transformation Scholarship Program provides financial support to Stanford Children's Health employees for degree and/or certificate programs of study in select fields that are critical to the hospital's future success.

Evidence-Based Practice/Research Fellowship

The Evidence-Based Practice (EBP)/Research Fellowship offers support for interprofessional clinicians as they implement practice changes or conduct a research study in their unit/department. The goal of this program is to provide an opportunity for clinicians to conduct a research study or EBP project that will improve patient care and positively impact measurable outcomes. This fellowship empowers a clinician's autonomous professional practice through the study and implementation of EBP and research. Participants will be given up to 40 hours for appraisal and implementation of an EBP project. Each fellow will be assigned an EBP mentor to coach the fellow through implementation and analysis.

Advanced Practice Nurse Scholars Fellowship

The goal of this fellowship is to allow advanced practice nurses to develop innovative patient care treatments that can be translated to the bedside in a time-effective manner. All APNs working as employees at Stanford Children’s Health are eligible to apply for the fellowship. Applications are accepted annually and the fellowship runs for 15 months. APNs are given four hours a week away from the clinical area to participate in a research study. The APNSF program will accept study proposals that are observational, historical control, randomized control, qualitative and other areas which must be specified.
