Each year, the Foundation for Physical Therapy Research (FPTR) funds physical therapy research through doctoral scholarships. Recipients of these scholarships apply these funds toward the completion of their post-professional doctoral degree.
FPTR’s current scholarship cycle opened on October 8, 2021, and FPTR is now accepting applications for its Promotion of Doctoral Studies I & II (PODS) Scholarships. PODS I Scholarships of $7,500 support the coursework phase of post-professional doctoral studies prior to candidacy. PODS II Scholarships of $15,000 support of the post-candidacy phase of post-professional doctoral studies. This year, FPTR anticipates it will fund nine PODS I scholarships and six PODS II Scholarships. Applicants from all specialty areas are encouraged to apply.
Additionally, FPTR is now using a new Grants Management platform to simplify and streamline the application and peer-review process. All online submissions will now be accepted through Altum’s propsalCentral. Applicants can access guidelines, instructions, and important dates at Foundation4pt.org and submit their applications at proposalcentral.com.
