The American Academy for Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine grant program supports the mission of AACPDM to improve the health and general status of children and adults with cerebral palsy, genetic and developmental disorders, or childhood acquired disabilities by providing financial assistance for the development and presentation of a high-quality educational seminar related to improving the early identification and treatment of individuals with childhood acquired disability.
Through the AACPDM Development Grant program, the academy will provide a single grant of up to $5,000 to a group that is highly motivated, well organized, and has a strong vested interest in improving clinical practice through the dissemination of knowledge.
To be eligible, applicants must be an AACPDM member in good standing; be located outside the United States or Canada, preferably in a country with no like organization; be involved in research or the care of individuals with cerebral palsy, developmental disorders, or other childhood acquired disability; and have potential other funding to supplement the project if needed.
Application forms and all supplementary materials must be submitted on or before August 31, two years prior to the estimated meeting date.
See the AACPDM website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
