The up to $5,000 AHTF Burkhalter New Investigator Grant is for clinical research in hand and upper limb rehabilitation. The up to $9,000. Grab the Evidence Grant For Basic Research Science and Evidenced Based Studies is currently available. All AHTF funded grants are contingent upon receipt of qualified applications.
