!!NEW!!

Key dates for the 2024 Research Grant Cycle have been updated!

Highlights

  • New open and closing dates. Please review them carefully.
  • We are posting the guidelines for almost two weeks before the application forms open on ProposalCentral.com.
  • Please be sure to use the 2024 guidelines and instructions. We have updated, simplified and clarified requirements.
  • Applications requiring a letter of intent will only open for that portion of the application. Only researchers invited to submit a full application will access the entire form.
  • The Magistro Family Foundation and the two Paris Patla grants have extended deadlines for submission this year, due to the fact there is an initial qualifying step before being invited.
  • Due to changes being made to the grant process, the Foundation has discontinued providing any examples of past grant applications.  Please do not rely on ones that you may have already accessed.
  • The FAQs will be posted as soon as they are ready

  • All grants require APTA membership. Academy-sponsored grants also require membership in that academy.
  • All proposed studies must indicate how they address one or more priorities in the APTA Research Agenda. Additionally, Academy-sponsored grants may also require proposed studies to address one or more of their research priorities.
  • Other requirements and eligibility exist for each grant, and they vary among grants. Read grant guidelines very carefully.

Portions of example applications will not be provided before applications open. Please note that past examples may not have the same informational requirements as the ones for 2024.
