Program:
Nurse Faculty Loan Program
Summary:
The purpose of this program is to increase the number of qualified nursing faculty by providing funding to accredited schools of nursing. The NFLP is designed to prepare and train qualified nurse educators to fill faculty vacancies and increase the number of trained nurses entering the workforce. This goal is accomplished by supporting schools of nursing that prepare students to serve as nurse faculty. Schools (herein referenced as institutions) are required to design and implement curriculum to prepare nursing students to apply teaching strategies, develop curriculum for both classroom and clinical instruction, and be able to create effective methods for evaluation of student learning outcomes. Grantees are awarded funds to support nursing students and are expected to establish and operate a distinct, interest-bearing NFLP loan fund. Institutions make loans from this fund to assist registered nurses in completing their graduate nursing education to become qualified nurse faculty. The program offers cancellation of up to 85 percent of NFLP loans for borrowers that graduate and serve as full-time nursing faculty for the prescribed period of time.
Eligibility:
Accredited schools of nursing or departments within an academic institution, such as a Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, which offer an eligible advanced nursing degree program(s).

Center for Care Innovations
Program:
Innovation Lab: Whole Health
Summary:
This year in iLab, we are looking for bold ideas with the potential to address an upstream barrier to health. Your upstream idea might take on a specific challenge related to economic stability, the physical environment (i.e. housing, transport, community spaces, air quality), education opportunities, food security, safety, or social support. There are many unsolved social determinants of health (SDOH) issues, and we provide you with resources to make your idea a reality. We want you to bring the best ideas from the health care safety net and partner organizations —- whether they are local businesses, public institutions, social enterprises, managed care plans, or nonprofits doing inspiring work. Your organization may be a lead, contributor, advocate, or advisor on a local or regional project to build an essential community resource, strengthen an existing asset, or enhance the community environment. How are you trying to tackle this upstream challenge in a different way?.
Awards:
Four to six projects will be accepted for iLab, each receiving grants of up to $50,000 to offset project development costs, staff time, and travel. Your team also receives technical support to help measure your idea’s impact and tell stories about what you’ve learned along the way.

Program:
Faculty Grants
Summary:
Faculty grants support the creation of new courses and programs in which students develop ideas and gain the skills to bring them to market Innovation is a skill that can and should be taught in universities. With our faculty grants, VentureWell challenges faculty to pioneer new ways to engage their students in the entrepreneurial process. There are two types of faculty grants: Course & Program grants and Sustainable Vision grants. Course & Program grants support courses or programs at the intersection of invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship that lead to the creation and support of E-Teams. Focus areas include but are not limited to: general (technology-based) entrepreneurship, new materials/clean tech/green energy, biomedical and healthcare, information technology. Sustainable Vision (SV) grants are very similar to Course & Program grants in that they support experiential learning and generate E-Teams. The key difference is that Sustainable Vision proposals must lead to the development of technology innovations that address poverty alleviation and basic human needs. A local, off-campus partner must be identified in the proposal. Focus areas include but are not limited to: water, sanitation, healthcare, agriculture, shelter, information technology.
