NEW YORK STATE
RESEARCH AND INJURY COMMITTEE
Tracye Rawls-Martin, MS, ATC
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 $1500.00, 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), Preceptors (clinical educators) as well as ATC’s in; Professional Sports, Secondary Schools, Health Care Administration/Rehabilitation, Military, Occupational Health, Performing Arts, and Public Safety to take part in the future of athletic training education by submitting research projects for grant funding during the 2018 academic year.
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 May 15th, 2018. 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 June 2018 NYSATA conference.
In the past, we have awarded $500.00 - $2,000.00 dollars to the following research recipients:
