Foundation for Physical Therapy Invites LOIs to Develop Centers of Excellence


The Foundation for Physical Therapy has issued a Request for Applications for projects that aim to establish a center of excellence in physical therapy health services, health policy research, and training.

Grants of up to $2.5 million over five years will be awarded for the creation and operation, over a five-year period, of a facility and program designed to foster research and training in physical therapy-related health services/health policy.

The facility must be used to train investigators in health services/health policy research and to support PT-related health services/health policy research pilot projects. The winning applicant will use the funds to develop a health services/health policy research career training program; recruit faculty, mentors, and trainees; and provide trainees with opportunities to work with researchers at local, state, federal, payer, or think tank institutions.

To be eligible, applicants must be a U.S.-based public or nonprofit private institution/organization such as a university or college, or a faith- or community-based organization. Small businesses and for-profit organizations in the U.S. also are eligible to apply. Contract work with other institutions is allowable.

For complete program guidelines and instructions for submitting an LOI, visit the foundation’s website.
