Leininger Culture Care Scholarship Award

AWARD ADVANCING CULTURE CARE SCHOLARSHIP



The Leininger Culture Care Scholarship Award is intended for nurses who advance culture care nursing. The prestigious Award is given in honor of Dr. Madeleine Leininger and funded by Dr. Marilyn Ray. An Award of $1,000.00 is offered each year towards expenses for conference participation. 

 

Dr. Madeleine Leininger was the first nursing scholar to declare that "caring is the essence of nursing" and contributed to the creation of the International Association for Human Caring with caring science scholars. She is the founder of Transcultural Nursing and the Transcultural Nursing Society and the Council on Nursing and Anthropology. Dr. Leininger was my mentor for my PhD in Transcultural Nursing and the study of caring within the institutional culture and the development of the Theory of Bureaucratic Caring. I am happy to support students or faculty who are committed to applying for funding to support research, practice the education of transcultural caring and present their scholarship at the annual IAHC conference.
