Foundation for Physical Therapy Accepting LOIs for Research Projects
The mission of the Foundation for Physical Therapy is to fund and publicize physical therapy research that determines the scientific basis and value of services intended to optimize physical functioning by physical therapists, and to develop the next generation of researchers.
To that end, the foundation is accepting Letters of Intent for its Magistro Family Foundation Research Grant program.
Through the annual program, FPT will award grants of up to $80,000 over one or two years for investigator-initiated studies focused on evaluating the effectiveness of interventions most commonly delivered by physical therapists as determined by current practice patterns and/or developing innovative interventions and evaluating their effectiveness. Priority will be given to studies that examine not only the therapeutic effectiveness of interventions but also their cost effectiveness.
To be eligible, the principal investigator must possess a license to practice physical therapy in the U.S. or in a U.S. jurisdiction; have met all the requirements for physical therapy licensure in the U.S. or in a U.S. jurisdiction, including having received a passing score on the licensure exam; possess a physical therapist assistant license in the U.S. or in a U.S. jurisdiction; or have met all the requirements for licensure as a physical therapist assistant in the U.S. or in a U.S. jurisdiction, including having received a passing score on the licensure exam.
Letters of Intent must be received no later than June 1, 2015. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit full applications by August 5, 2015.
Visit the FPT website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
DEADLINE: JUNE 1, 2015 (LETTERS OF INTENT)
