HPA Grant Program
Share |

The purpose of the Section Health Policy and Administration Grant Program is to 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 grants provide funding to assist new physical therapist investigators, or established investigators who are embarking on a new research agenda in these areas of physical therapist practice, leadership, administration, or education. Through this grant program, the Section hopes to encourage the development of proposals that will seek financial support from external agencies.

1-2 research grant awards of up to $15,000 are available to Section members to assist with a 1-year research study that investigates a question or questions of importance to health policy or clinical administration. Grants may be renewable (no-cost extension) for up to 1 year.

2016 Deadline for Proposals: midnight, December 31, 2015

Physical therapists receiving funding from this program will be expected to report their findings at a Combined Sections Meeting within three years of receipt of funding.
