Funding Databases

Thanks to other groups on campus, the Libraries have created pages for 2 funding sources available to all LSUHSC faculty, staff and students.

Grant Forward is the newly revised IRIS database and is provided by the LSUHSC New Orleans Office of Research Services.

SciVal Funding allows searching in the US and abroad and is provided by the Stanley S. Scott Cancer Center Office of Grants and Development.

Both databases are available on and off campus with the Libraries’ WAM access.



Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Program Grant

The LSUHSC School of Nursing has been awarded a $700,000 grant by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
Health Resources and Services Administration. The grant will fund students who are pursuing degrees in the Primary Care Nurse Practitioner program. “Money can be used for tuition, books, fees, and reasonable living expenses,” according to the alert released by the Office of Information Services. Full-time students who meet eligibility requirements may receive up to $22,000 from the grant.

$3.12 Million Grant

LSU Health Sciences Center was recently awarded a $3.12 million grant through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in order to train more primary care physicians.

An article on states “The five-year grant will be used to double the number of primary care doctors trained through the Rural Family Medicine Residency program at LSU’s Bogalusa Medical Center.”

Louisiana has a vast shortage of primary care physicians and statistics are expected to get worse. Congratulations to LSUHSC for working to help our state in this time of need!
