AAPA-PAEA Research Fellowship Application Window Now Open

Calling all researchers! We are now accepting applications for the AAPA-PAEA Research Fellowship. The deadline to submit an application is 12:00 p.m. (noon) ET on Wednesday, June 20.

The goal of this fellowship is to strengthen the research skills and productivity of qualified PA faculty and to develop the next generation of PA research leaders. Specifically, the fellowship provides 20 percent of the recipient’s base salary (up to $25,000) to each fellow’s institution to secure protected time for research. This will permit a 20 percent time release from teaching and other activities, allowing fellows to focus on scholarly activity of interest to the PA profession and PA education. It also includes a travel stipend of up to $7,500.

Fellows are expected to use the dedicated time to develop their research skills by completing a research project under the guidance of a mentor, engaging in educational activities, and broadening their knowledge of PA education and the PA profession. By the conclusion of the fellowship, fellows are expected to have completed their research and have their findings prepared for publication and presentation.

The fellowship will last from November 1, 2018, through October 31, 2019. For more information about eligibility, applicant evaluation criteria, and application requirements, please download the AAPA-PAEA Research Fellowship Guidelines.
