Launched in 2014, the Jonas Policy Scholars program, generously funded by Jonas Philanthropies, supports early-career scholars seeking to shape nursing practice, education, and research policy. The Academy Jonas Policy Scholars program is a two-year fellowship program in which up to six highly-qualified doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows, or recent doctoral graduates (within 2 years of graduation) in nursing will be selected to learn about the policy work of the Academy while they advance their own career goals in areas aligning with the Academy’s policy priorities. The three components of the Jonas Policy Scholar program are mentoring, policy, and engagement. It is this three-pronged approach that makes this program unique.
