One way in which the Academy promotes research is through the annual Research Grants. The AACPDM has partnered with the Pedal with Pete Foundation and the Cerebral Palsy Alliance to fund multiple grants, up to $25,000 USD each!
Grant applications are open for online submission. Please read the application outline on how to prepare your application for submission. 2020 applications are due Friday, April 17. To learn more about these opportunities, visit the AACPDM research grant website.
AACPDM offers many awards each year, to honor our outstanding members and scientific presenters at our Annual Meeting. Nominate your mentor, submit a multi-media project or honor an inspirational person in your life.
