The intent of the foundation is to fund the highest quality, scientifically based, and clinically relevant research with priority given to projects having the most immediate 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 regarding clinical research. Indirect costs are not allowed for this award.
