SPA is pleased to announce we are receiving applications for the new Educational Bursary for Rural and Remote Physical Therapists! SPA recognizes there are challenges to pursuing continuing education as a physical therapist working in rural and remote Saskatchewan. We know that over 30% of the Saskatchewan population is rural and remote, yet only 10% of physiotherapists live and work in these communities. One additional way for SPA to support this group of physical therapists across the province is through this educational bursary (up to $500). A lottery system will be used to select one successful applicant every fall.
You are eligible if:
- You are a SPA member;
- For at least 2 full years you have resided and practiced in a community of under 50,000 people that is over 75 km from Saskatoon or Regina; and,
- You have attended/will attend a physiotherapy-related educational event, or have completed/will complete further training, between January 1 and December 31 of the year of the application.
