Section on Women’s Health of the American Physical Therapy Association Research Grant Awards Program
The purpose of the Section on Women’s Health (SOWH) Research Grant Awards program is to encourage the scientific study of issues in women’s health and physical therapy and to support the dissemination of research findings.
Funding is available with a total of up to $10,000.00 to be disbursed to an organization or institution. More than one award may be dispersed. For instance, two separate awards in the amount of $5,000 may be awarded.
Grant Submission and Deadline
Proposals submission deadline is April 1, 11:00PM Eastern Standard Time. The application should be received in electronic format by the SOWH Director of Research no later than April 1 Eastern Standard Time of the application year. The applicant may request a “read receipt” via email to ensure submission of the electronic format of the grant application to document receipt of the application. No paper or facsimile submissions will be accepted.
In 10 pages provide a Research Plan with a description of the proposed study including details of the purpose, specific aims, hypothesis (to be tested or generated), sampling design, methods, analytical approach, expected results and discussion. The research plan should also highlight the novelty of the study, the importance to women’s health and physical therapy, background, significance including conceptual framework and preliminary data.
The budget, budget justification, facilities, resources, other support, biosketches, subject procedures, citation list, data and safety monitoring plan, and appendices are NOT considered part of the 10 pages and should be their own sections. The budget and budget justification should be no longer than 4 pages.
Documentation of approval by an Institutional Review board (human subjects) and copies of approved informed consent forms are due to the Director of Research within 30 days of notification of award. The awarded funds will be distributed after IRB approval has been granted. Indirect costs are not allowable under this mechanism.
Please attach as appendices copies of Internal Review Board (IRB) approval (if already secured), informed consent forms, any written instruments used in the project (e.g., survey, standardized test, instructions to subjects) and letters of support. If the grant is awarded, IRB approval is required prior to the distribution of funds.
The appendices are not subject to formatting requirements and there is no limit to the number of appendices. However, the appendices should not be used to circumvent the page limits in the other sections. Applicants should include only those appendices which will allow the reviewer to provide an optimal review of the application. All appendices should be attached as they appear referenced in the research plan. References should be cited using AMA or APA style. Tables and charts may use smaller font if necessary, but no smaller than Arial 8 point font.
Award Period and Notification of Award
The funding period is July 1 – June 30. Funding is expected to begin on July 1 of the award year and end the following year on June 30. Awardees will be notified by e-mail of the award decision once the review of the applications has been completed. Please note that if IRB approval is not secured prior to July 1, distribution of funding may be delayed or distributed to another applicant. In the event that distribution of funding is delayed or redistributed to another applicant, the ending date will remain unchanged.
Applicants may be students, clinicians, educators or researchers.
A progress report is due within 90 days following completion of the project and sent to the SOWH Director of Research and Executive Director. The progress report will include a description of the results, plans for the next phase of research, an update on manuscripts, grant proposals and abstracts presented related to the project.
Data Dissemination or Publication
Recipients are required to submit a research article from the funded project to the Journal of the Section on Women’s Health upon completion with appropriate acknowledgement of the source(s) of project funding.
