Event Details

Grantsmanship & Mentorship in Education Research (GAMER) for Physical Therapy


Through the Grantsmanship & Mentorship in Education Research (GAMER), ACAPT and its partners in the Education Leadership Partnership (ELP) bring together a nationally-recognized group of physical therapy mentors and consultants as faculty, including representatives from potential funding agencies, to support participants work.

The workshop provides guidance in:

  • developing robust and theoretically-grounded research agendas,
  • research design and analysis (multiple methods),
  • identifying “best-bet” funding sources, grant writing and budgeting,
  • one-on-one mentoring,
  • interacting with a community of scholars and representatives from organizations that fund education research, and
  • creating intra- and inter-institutional collaborative research networks and projects.

Engagement of mentors and mentees will occur prior to, during, and following the workshop to develop sound education research proposals that maximize chances for successful funding and publication.

The overall aim is to create and expand a cadre of highly-qualified, networked and productive education researchers who will:

  • advance the science of physical therapist education,
  • make significant contributions to the literature, and
  • ultimately enhance education and practice today and in the future. 

Location:  Medical University of South Carolina

Applications open:  May 1, 2020 - June 15, 2020

GAMER workshop will take place October 29 - November 1, 2020.
