Faculty-Generated Research Grants Program

The overall goals of the PAEA Faculty-Generated Research Grants Program are to:

  • Promote quality scholarship regarding PA education and the PA field
  • Increase research capacity and collaboration across institutions
  • Encourage the development and training of emerging PA education researchers

To accomplish these goals, PAEA will provide a substantial investment of up to $50,000 for a study that meaningfully expands the existing body of knowledge on PA education and/or the PA profession. Funding will be prioritized for projects that propose rigorous, sophisticated methods and analyses to address novel research questions consistent with the goals and strategies of the PAEA Strategic Plan. Projects that involve collaboration and mentorship among senior and junior PA researchers will also be given special consideration.

How to apply

PAEA will begin accepting Letter of Intent applications on Wednesday, August 1 with a deadline of 12 p.m. ET on Thursday, September 20.  We will invite full proposals no later than November 1.
