Impact Grant Criteria

  1. The CPNP Foundation will award a maximum of $6,000 annually through the Student Chapter Impact Grant program. Assuming appropriate, quality submissions, the CPNP Foundation will award a minimum of one award but can split the $6,000 grant amount between up to three chapters annually at its discretion. Each student chapter awarded a grant will also receive a $500 registration and travel stipend to the next CPNP Annual Meeting for 1 chapter representative to attend and serve as a representative at the CPNPF booth where the results from their activity/initiative will be featured.
  2. The scope of the proposal must be consistent with the goals of the Student Chapter Impact Grants.
