Frequently Asked Questions

How will my Mentor be involved in the Institute? 

If the applicant is selected, his or her Mentor will be required to attend and actively participate in the workshop, site visit, and STTI’s Biennial Convention. In addition, a potential applicant’s Mentor may be asked to complete an application too. Sharing this application with your Mentor(s) early in the application process will inform them of the time and resources necessary for their full participation in the Institute.

Should I work with my direct supervisor and/or my dean in the development of my Institute application and project summary?

Yes, involving your direct supervisor and/or dean in the development of the Institute application and project goals will help him or her gain awareness of the time and support that will be required for successful participation and completion in the institute. This understanding and involvement should be reflected in their letter of support.

May I email or fax the application?

All applications must be submitted via the online application system so emailing or faxing are not viable options.

Will Scholars receive continuing nursing education credit for participation?
