We are very fortunate to have the ability to offer funding opportunities for our district members who choose to explore questions in athletic training through research initiatives.  The research that is supported by our District leads to the development of the young professional, while also paving the way for more seasoned researchers to explore avenues which can help provide pilot data for larger projects.  The opportunity to submit proposal materials is upon us, as the application deadline for electronic submissions is October 1st.  There are a few small changes to the application, so please review it carefully before submitting your materials.  The committee looks forward to your submissions!
