    The Foundation for Physical Therapy recently awarded Florence P. Kendall Doctoral Scholarships for the 2011-2012 academic year to Ryan Marker, PT, DPT, University of Colorado, Denver; Jennifer Reneker, PT, MSPT, Kent State University; and Bahar Shahidi, PT, DPT, University of Colorado, Denver.

    The $5,000 Kendall Doctoral Scholarship is awarded annually to outstanding physical therapists as they begin their first year of graduate studies toward a postprofessional doctoral degree.  

    Two physical therapists each have received $40,000 research grants from the Foundation in support of their projects to evaluate the effectiveness of physical therapy interventions.

    The Magistro Family Foundation Research Grant has been awarded to Kristin Archer, PT, DPT, PhD, an assistant professor at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, for her 2-year project Cognitive-Behavioral-based Physical Therapy: Improving Surgical Spine Outcomes.

    Jill Heathcock, PT, MPT, PhD, an assistant professor at Ohio State University, is the recipient of the Pittsburgh-Marquette Challenge Research Grant for her 1-year project Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) on Children With Hemiparesis.
