Dissertation Research Grants program has been discontinued.
The Dissertation Research Grant Program of the Institute for the Study of Occupation and Health represents one of AOTF's many investments in building the careers of scientists in the field of occupational therapy. Based in part upon the structure of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) research grant application, this program is unique to the field of occupational therapy as it specifically seeks to promote the development of qualified occupational therapy researchers who are enrolled in programs that value strong mentorship and whose careers are dedicated to advancing science in occupational therapy. These grants are available to occupational therapists whose dissertation research directly contributes to the AOTA-AOTF Occupational Therapy Research Agenda.
