    Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation


    The Rita and Alex Hillman Foundations grantmaking strategy focuses on three key areas: education, research, and implementation. Specifically, they seek to:
    • Cultivate a new generation of nurse innovators;
    • Equip young nurse researchers with the broad, interdisciplinary skill sets necessary to lead change in health care;
    • Support innovations with a high potential for patient impact;
    • Encourage the rapid development of promising research;
    • Promote the translation of tested innovations into policy and practice; and
    • Ensure that significant innovations reach the greatest number of patients.
    The current programs funded by the foundation are:
    • Hillman Innovations in Care Program: These awards will explicitly target innovations that provide care to vulnerable populations, a category that includes the economically disadvantaged, racial and ethnic minorities, and other groups that encounter barriers to accessing quality healthcare services.
    • Hillman Scholars Program in Nursing Innovation: This program is designed to produce the next generation of nurse researchers who will lead the realignment of health care to become more effective, patient-centered, accessible, equitable, and affordable.
    • Nursing Driven Innovations: These grants seek nurse-generated solutions to some of the most intractable ills facing healthcare.
