NEW YORK STATE
RESEARCH AND INJURY COMMITTEE
Tracye Rawls-Martin, MS, ATC
CALL FOR ANNUAL MEETING POSTERS!
In the early 1990s NYSATA’s Executive Board established the Research and Injury Committee in hopes that it would stimulate more scholarship among the membership. Kent Scriber was appointed its initial chair. There was no specific budget established for awards. The committee established the qualifying criteria for these potential grants. These grants typically ranged between $700.00 and $1500, so at that time several thousand dollars had been awarded for research by NYSATA members. Tracye Rawls-Martin/LIU-Brooklyn took over as chair in 2010.
The NYSATA Research and Injury Committee would like to take this opportunity to invite Athletic Training Students (undergraduate/graduate), Faculty (full-time/part-time) and Preceptors (clinical educators) to take part in the future of athletic training education by submitting research projects for grant funding during the 2015-2016 academic year.
In the past, we have awarded $500.00-$1,500.00 dollars to the following research recipients:
I encourage you to submit grant proposals for research projects that are new or the ones you’ve had on the back burners forever. It’s time to stop procrastinating, write the grant proposal, and submit it to us no later than April 15th, 2015. This will give us enough time to review your work, enough time to re-submit if necessary and the NYSATA budget department time to allocate funds to jump start the research project during the fall semester and more importantly enough time for you to participate in the poster presentation at the May 2016 NYSATA conference.
