RESEARCH GRANT PROGRAM

The Section on Pediatrics offers Research Grants, Mentored Research Grants, and Planning Grants to Section members. The purpose of the grants is to provide funding to assist physical therapist investigators and to encourage research that will add to the body of knowledge related to improvement of pediatric physical therapy. Research Grants (RG1 up to $30,000 or RG2 up to $10,000) are available to assist with a one-year research study that investigates questions of importance to pediatric physical therapy. Mentored Research Grants up to $10,000 can be used to support post-professional thesis, dissertation, or other student research, and are also appropriate for new and emerging clinical researchers. Periodically, Planning Grants up to $30,000 are available to support the development of multi-site clinical research related to the topic of a Section research summit. A list of Section grants available this year, as well as due dates, application forms and details of each grant can be found on the Section website at www.pediatricapta.org under Research & Awards, or by contacting the Section on Pediatrics Executive Office at pediatrics@apta.org.
