Apply Now for an All of Us Research Program Mini-Grant Award

On August 8, a Call for Applications for Mini-Grant Awards was issued by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) All of Us Research Program. AACN has been a long-standing partner with the All of Us program, a historic effort supported by NIH to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health. The purpose of these awards is to facilitate the engagement of the academic nursing community with the program and its focus on including historically underrepresented communities in biomedical research (UBR). Mini-grant awardees will help increase awareness of the program and the importance of participation of members of UBR communities.

The application deadline to apply for an All of Us Research mini-grant award is September 26, 2022. For more information and to apply, click here.
