The TAFP Foundation provides grants of up to $5,000 for practice-based research in Texas. Projects are reviewed by a research committee twice a year. The next deadline for applications is Feb. 1, 2011. Applications must be submitted electronically.

In addition to a completed application, we also ask the investigator to agree to the following criteria:

  • Provide the Research Grant Committee with a status report Feb. 1 and June 1 of each year that the project is active indicating the current status of the project and any changes in procedure or timetable anticipated.
  • Acknowledge the TAFP-F grant support in the final report and any resulting publications.
  • Reimburse the TAFP-F for any funds not used for the project.
  • Reimburse the TAFP-F in the amount of the grant if the project leads to the development of a marketable product that renders profit. If profit totals less than the amount of the grant, the investigator will reimburse the total amount of the profits.
  • Provide a brief summary report for publication in the TAFP’s magazine, Texas Family Physician, upon completion of the project.
