NPTEFF Research Scholarships

Are you a second year DPT student or PTA student working on research? Apply now for an NPTEFF research scholarship.

Rules & Eligibility

Applications are open to all second year DPT and PTA students. Currently licensed PTs, PTAs, and faculty should not apply, but may apply on behalf of another individual/student.

Please complete the application once per scholarship cycle (up to two times per year). Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Multiple submissions will not increase chances of being selected.

The below scholarship application must be completed in full in order to be considered. Incomplete applications will not be accepted.

Students will be provided with a one time distribution of $1,000 per award. This is an unrestricted scholarship, though it is meant for research purposes only. 

Students should have a 3.5GPA, have completed EBP course(s), and have a research mentor.

Projects with potential for publication will receive preference. 

Good luck and best wishes from the team at NPTE Final Frontier!
