TGHN Calls for Applications: Global Research Nurses Pump-priming Grants 2023 – Research Project Award

The Global Health Network (TGHN) are delighted to announce the launch of the Global Research Nurses Pump-priming Grants 2023: Research Project Award

Through the Global Research Nurses Pump-priming Grants 2023: Research Project Award, TGHN aims to encourage nurses and midwives to assume research leadership positions within their institutions and communities. Research leadership involves leading and overseeing the development, implementation, and dissemination of research projects. It requires a deep understanding of research methodologies, data analysis, and interpretation, as well as excellent communication and collaboration skills. By developing research leadership capacity among nurses and midwives, we can ensure that research efforts are informed by the unique perspectives and experiences of these healthcare professionals and that the research is conducted in a way that is responsive to the needs and priorities of their communities.


  • Be a member of Global Research Nurses at The Global Health Network (if you’re not already, just sign up now – it’s free.)
  • Be employed by a non-commercial organization in LMICs (LMICs are defined as all countries included in the DAC list of ODA Recipients. List available here).
  • Applicants must hold the role of a clinical nurse, research nurse or midwife (this award is open to all levels of seniority from junior nurses through to senior nurses, as well as nurses in leadership or management positions).

Funding details:

  • pump-priming grants ranging from £2,000 to £10,000 specifically for nursing and midwifery-led research relevant to LMICs.
  • Grants are intended to cover the costs of conducting new small research projects (typically proof-of-principle studies to facilitate further funding through other funders).
