Deadline for Letters of Intent (LOIs) Approaching

Three $100,000 research grants offered this funding cycle require an LOI submitted by June 15, 2023

The Foundation is offering 11 research grants in the 2023 funding cycle. Applications are open. These opportunities support research across specialties and provide critically needed funding for physical therapist researchers. Foundation funding is awarded using a rigorous scientific peer review process modeled after the National Institutes of Health — a practice that sets us apart in the field of physical therapy research.

Please note that the Letters of Intent (LOIs) for the Magistro Family Foundation Research Grant, the Paris Patla Physical Therapy Research Grant, and the Paris Patla Manual Therapy Research Grant are due June 15, 2023. All fall 2023 grant funding applications must be submitted by August 2nd.

Special thanks to our supporters making these awards possible: APTA Academies – Acute Care, Orthopaedic, Pediatric, Pelvic Health as well as the Magistro Family Endowment Fund, Paris Patla Endowment Fund, Paris Patla Manual Therapy Fund, APTA’s Supporting the Profession Fund, the McEwen Family Endowment Fund, the Marilyn Moffat Endowment Fund, and SWORD Health.
