The American Physical Therapy Association is seeking applications for projects that stimulate, encourage, and support research activities that enhance the body of knowledge related to health policy, clinical administration, global health, and the use of technology in physical therapy. The program is administered by the association's Section on Health Policy & Administration.
Catalyst grants of up to $15,000 will be awarded to support new physical therapist investigators, or established investigators who are embarking on a new research agenda, in the areas of physical therapist practice, leadership, administration, or education. Grants may be renewable (no-cost extension) for up to one year.
To be eligible, applicants must be an APTA Health Policy & Administration section member. Collaborative research with non-section members is permissible as long as the principal investigator is a member of the Section on HPA.
See the APTA website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
