The 2023 GFPT Grant Program will begin in the summer, with a fall due date. Watch the website for updated information. Information will be posted as plans are finalized.
The purpose of GFPT grant program is to promote the highest quality, scientifically based, and clinically relevant research with priority given to projects with a clinical application. Proposed studies should add to or refine the body of knowledge on which physical therapist practice is based using any of a variety of recognized investigative methods, such as experimental, descriptive, or correlational. Proposed studies should begin to address the most critical questions in clinical practice. The project should be a collaborative venture between two or more partner organizations or institutions.
GFPT grants are limited to a maximum of $10,000. The application deadline will be announced soon. Awardee will be notified. Funding will begin in 2023, upon receipt of confirmed IRB approval, and must be expended within a 24 month budget period of the award.
The GFPT Grant funds are available to members of APTA Georgia (formerly PTAG). The applicant must be a Georgia-licensed physical therapist or physical therapy assistant or have met the eligibility for physical therapy licensure. The applicant should contact the Board President before applying if there is any question as to meeting one of the above three criteria.
Type of Proposal
Proposals will evaluate the efficacy and quality of the outcomes of physical therapy interventions and/or services. All research methods, including surveys, qualitative approaches, and interventional studies, are eligible for consideration.
Because proposals are evaluated by an interdisciplinary peer review panel, they should be written to be understood by people who are not in the applicant’s field of study or experts in the applicant’s field of study. Applicants should limit their use of jargon and acronyms whenever possible.
