Queen Silvia Nursing Award was established in Sweden in 2013 as a gift to Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden. Since then, the scholarship was also established in Finland in 2014, Poland in 2016 and Germany in 2017. The intention was all along to internationalize the scholarship and we are now taking another step forward as we launch our new website: Queenilvianursingaward.com.
On queensilvianursingaward.com, we gather the latest news and information from all countries. In the coming period, we will also launch new exciting projects to further increase the collaboration between the countries where the scholarship is currently active. We encourage you to visit the page regularly to keep yourselves posted!

Queen Silvia Nursing Award
Queen Silvia Nursing Award is an annual scholarship awarded to nursing students who have contributed promising ideas that will improve elderly and dementia care. This scholarship aims to promote an exchange of ideas and dialogue concerning future development possibilities in elderly and dementia care, in addition to attracting and developing leadership and professional competence within the field of healthcare. It also wishes to draw attention to the role that nurses have in society and increase the attractiveness of a nursing education with a focus on elderly and dementia care.
Each scholar will receive a €6000 cash prize and the opportunity to participate in an individually curated internship. During the internship, the scholar will learn about healthcare and elderly care from various viewpoints by visiting partners of the scholarship.
