Guidelines for Preparing the Grant Final Report
for The Honor Society of Nursing Sigma Theta Tau International


  1. The final report must be submitted within 90 days of the end of the funding period. Once the final report is received, up to remaining US $500 will be sent, if owed. The report may be submitted as an executive summary or abstract, a manuscript, a research abstract, a publication or journal article related to the funded project. Dissertations are not accepted as final reports. The final report should include the following:
    1. Summary of project aims
    2. Theoretical/conceptual framework

    4. Summary of findings

    • Grant recipients must submit a full report (i.e., grey literature: the working paper, progress report, etc.) of their investigation/research results to the Virginia Henderson Global Nursing e-Repository. Grant recipients retain full copyright to all works submitted to the repository and may choose to distill/refine the information contained in the working paper and submit an article/book manuscript to the journal/publisher of their choice for tenure and/or promotion purposes. Most publishers do not consider the public dissemination of grey literature to be “prior publishing.” If the grant recipient is working with a publisher and has concerns about submitting the full report to the repository, an embargo period may be requested to avoid perceived interference with the journal/book publication process. Embargo periods will be considered on a case-by-case basis and will not extend beyond industry standards. The repository will display general item information during the embargo period, but the full-text attached file will not be accessible to the public for a set period of time. To submit a full report or for additional information, visit and select the “Get Started” tab. If you have additional questions, contact Kimberly Thompson, repository manager, by phone at 888.634.7575 (U.S./Canada toll-free) or via email at
