The AOTF Intervention Research Grant (IRG) is targeted to principal investigators who do not currently have substantial extramural research awards as an independent principal investigator (e.g., R01, PCORI, Research Program Project Grant, Veterans Administration Merit Award, Field-Initiated Project). Typically, the principal investigator (PI) will have a funding history associated with early stage, emerging, or early midcareer investigators that may include small research grants and training-related or mentored career awards. The PI must also have a commitment from an experienced research mentor who has an established record of substantial extramural grant funding, peer-reviewed publications and supervision and mentoring of researchers. The PI must be a credentialed occupational therapist (or a non-OT investigator with a primary academic appointment in an occupational therapy department). See the RFA below for more information.
