Don Pedersen Research Grants Program

The PAEA Research Team and Grants and Scholarship Review Committee invite PA faculty to submit proposals for the 2018 Don Pedersen Research Grants Program. Several grants of up to $7,000 may be awarded, with a total possible allotment of $21,000.

The Don Pedersen Research Grants Program is intended to foster PA faculty development in the area of research. The program encourages research about both PA education and PA workforce issues. The program is not intended to fund research on clinical practice.

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2018–2019 cycle.

Questions concerning this grants program should be addressed to research@PAEAonline.org.

History

The Don Pedersen Research Grants program initially began in 1997 as the Association of Physician Assistant Programs Research Institute Small Grants program. Pedersen’s first donation to the program occurred that same year. The present endowment, with donations and subsequent board contributions, was created in 2013 to fully fund the program. The name of the grants program was then changed to the Don Pedersen Research Grants program to honor Pedersen’s generous contributions.
