Foundation for Physical Therapy: Physical Therapy Research Grants

The Foundation provides support to emerging investigators to promote scientifically based and clinically relevant research related to the effectiveness of physical therapy practice. Research projects in any specialty may be supported. 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.

Opportunities in 2022:
Education Research Grant – Awarded to an emerging investigator for education research related to methods for promoting the uptake of research findings into education.

Foundation Research Grant – Awarded to an Emerging Investigator who seeks to conduct research with any area consistent with the APTA’s Research Agenda.

Geriatric Research Grant – Awarded to an Emerging Investigator for research that addresses an area of high impact and priority for improving the practice of physical therapy for the treatment of aging adults.

Snyder Research Grant – Awarded to support relevant clinical research projects aimed to investigate: a) those services delivered by physical therapists; and b) the development of new interventions that offer reasonable assurance that they will be clinically relevant and therapeutically effective.
