DPT and PTA Student Travel Awards for National Student Conclave

August 15, 2019


Are you a student member interested in attending NSC? Are you interested in pursuing research after graduation?

The Academy of Physical Therapy Research (SOR) DPT and PTA Student Travel Award was created to assist and support DPT and PTA students interested in pursuing research after graduation to subsidize costs to attend an APTA national conference. For 2019, SOR has funding for up to 3 awards of $500 each to offset the costs for attending NSC2019, to be held October 31-November 2, 2019 in Albuquerque, NM.

Applicants must be current Academy of Physical Therapy Research members and currently enrolled in a (CAPTE-approved) DPT program or a PTA program. Applicants must submit an application as part of the submission process. Winning applicants will receive up to $500 each for reimbursement of conference-related expenses such as travel/lodging/meals. To be reimbursed, the recipient must submit a follow-up essay, proof of conference registration and attendance, original receipts and the Academy’s reimbursement form to the Academy’s Executive Office within 6 weeks of the conference, or forfeit the award.

Recipients will be expected to maintain their Academy membership (membership is free for APTA student members!) and join one of the 4 Academy Special Interest Groups for a period of 1 year following the conference. This scholarship may be received only once per individual.

Applications are due by August 15, 2019.

We will ask student travel award recipients to write a short story about their NSC experience following the conference for inclusion in the SOR monthly newsletter.

Questions, please contact John Schmitt., SOR Membership Committee Chair, at jsschmitt@stkate.edu.
