Foundation for Physical Therapy Grant

NEXT FUNDING CYCLE: 2020

The Foundation, like the physical therapy profession, is dedicated to the goal of improving the quality and delivery of patient care. The Foundation accomplishes this by providing support to emerging investigators to promote scientifically based and clinically relevant research related to the effectiveness of physical therapist practice.

The Foundation supports research projects in any specialty. The Foundation supports only those intervention studies in which the interventions are provided by physical therapists, or selected components of the interventions are provided by physical therapist assistants under the direction and supervision of physical therapists.

APTA Acute Care - An Academy of the American Physical Therapy Association is providing a $40,000 Acute Care Research Grant to an Emerging Investigator seeking to advance the practice of acute care physical therapy. The grant focuses on basic or clinical projects that improve our understanding of rehabilitation in acute and clinical care. 

Congratulations to our inaugural grant awardee Michael Tevald, PT, PhD, for his project "Early Impact of Lung Transplantation on Skeletal Muscle!"

No overhead (indirect costs) are allowed for any grant awards under any circumstances.
