Paralyzed Veterans of America Education Foundation Invites Proposals for Innovative Educational Projects

Paralyzed Veterans of America advocates for better health care and benefits for paralyzed veterans, aids them in the search for a truly satisfying career, and provides them with a path to adventure through adaptive sports. Through its charitable arm, the Paralyzed Veterans of America Education and Training Foundation, the organization supports educational projects that benefit, serve, and enhance the quality of life of individuals with spinal cord injury/disease, their families, and caregivers.

The foundation considers funding in six categories: consumer, caregiver, and community education; professional development and education; research utilization and dissemination; assistive technology; conferences and symposia; and consumer guides. Projects should be designed to improve the quality of life for individuals with SCI/D, educate consumers about the consequences of and complications associated with SCI/D, improve the knowledge and skills of SCI/D healthcare professionals, and prevent the occurrence and complications of new SCI/D.

The foundation supports one-year projects with grants of up to $50,000; conferences and symposia are supported at a $15,000 maximum.

Eligible applicants should be affiliated with an academic institution, healthcare provider or organization, or a consumer advocate or organization. Grantee institutions must be located in the United States or Canada. Project directors and fellows are not required to be a U.S. or Canadian citizen.

For complete program guidelines, application instructions, and a list of past grant recipients, see the PVA Education and Training Foundation website.

Deadline: December 3, 2018
