The Board of Higher Education has awarded grants through competitive processes to support a variety of faculty and curriculum projects.

Increasing Faculty: Nurse Scholars Program

In collaboration with the Massachusetts Hospital Association, the Tufts Health Plan Foundation has provided $350,000 over 2 years to support the Nursing Initiative's efforts to increase the number of qualified faculty in nursing programs. To date, eighteen scholarships have been provided to current clinical nurses who are enrolled in masters or doctoral nursing programs and who have committed to teach upon graduation.
