Call for Research Grant Proposals
Deadline to submit proposals: October 1
One-year research grants are available to assist Academy of Physical Therapy Education members in conducting or planning for research that investigates a question of importance to the advancement of education in physical therapy. Questions related to the education of patients/clients, licensed PTs/PTAs or PT/PTA students will be considered.
Applications are reviewed once yearly for a maximum budget of $25,000. All budgets are rigorously reviewed and require justification for expenses. Grant recipients must account for all expenditures in the final report and return unused funds to the Academy of Physical Therapy Education. Funds cannot be used to attend conferences to disseminate results or for indirect costs or overhead.
