About the Program
The Pennsylvania Society of Physician Assistants has established a research grant program to provide funding for PAs who wish to pursue research relevant to PA practice, education, training, and/or advocacy. The PSPA will provide up to $2,000 per fiscal year in varying amounts not to exceed $1,000 for each individual project.
Who Can Apply
Applications will be accepted from any PA, PA educator or PA student within the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Applicants must be PSPA members in good standing. Previous grant awardees are welcome to apply but priority will be given to first-time applicants. Grant funding may not be used for computers, electronic devices, honoraria, or salaries.
Research projects must be aimed at investigating issues surrounding PA practice, education, training and/or advocacy efforts.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Awarding of grants will begin in July of each year with the beginning of the PSPA fiscal year and will continue year-round as funding is available.
A complete application must be submitted for consideration. All awardees must submit a written report of their findings to the PSPA within one year.
