Description of the Fellowship

 

The PAEA Research Fellowship in partnership with AAPA provides financial support for PAs with a strong interest in research about PA education and the profession. A grant covering 20 percent of the recipient’s base salary up to $25,000 will be allocated to the fellow’s institution to permit a 20 percent time release from teaching and other activities to allow them to focus on scholarly activities of interest to the PA profession and PA education. There is no allowance for institutional indirect costs. Fellows are expected to use the release time to complete their research project, develop their skills under the guidance of a mentor, engage in educational activities, and broaden their knowledge of PA education and the PA profession. By the conclusion of the fellowship, fellows should be finished or near completion of their project and preparing the findings for publication and presentation. It is the funders’ expectation that by one year after the end of the fellowship, a research manuscript describing and analyzing the results will be submitted to a peer-reviewed publication.
