The Mary Judd Research Grant

The Mary Judd Research Grant was created to encourage and contribute to the growth of research on occupational performance and occupational therapy and remains an important part of professional development for many of today’s occupational therapists.

Each year, an award of up to $1,000.00 is presented to a member of either Manitoba Society of Occupational Therapists or the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists conducting research in Manitoba.

Research projects must be directly applicable to the science of occupation and/or the practice of client-centred occupational therapy, be innovative, demonstrate originality and stand-up to scientific scrutiny, demonstrate a multidisciplinary approach and consumer participation and be conducted within Manitoba.

Research projects must not be initiated prior to the completion of the grant review process, which can take up to 3 months.

Applications must be submitted to the MSOT offices no later than 4:00pm on the first Monday of November to be eligible. Late entries will not be accepted.
