Two awards of £750 are being offered for a registered children’s nurse and an undergraduate or postgraduate nursing student to present their research at a UK conference.

Nursing Children and Young People, supported by the RCN's Research in Child Health community, is seeking applications for its awards in 2019-20.

Applicants should submit a 350-word abstract describing either a literature review or a research study they have been involved in from clinical practice.

Abstracts will be considered that focus on research design, research methods or studies where results are not yet available.

Brilliant opportunity to disseminate research widely

An award of £750 each will be made to a registered children’s nurse and a nursing student – undergraduate or postgraduate, including those on master’s degree and PhD programmes.

Applicants can seek support from their research or dissertation supervisor in writing the abstract. Winners will be expected to write an article for the journal.

Research in Child Health community chair Kate Oulton said: 'It is important that children's nurses are able to disseminate their research as widely as possible and conferences are an integral part of being able to do this. However, funding is difficult to find, so this is a brilliant opportunity.'

How to apply: Email Helen Hyland, administration manager, Nursing Children and Young People, for an application form or phone +44 (0) 20 8872 3138. The deadline for submission is 28 February 2020
