Educational Bursary for Rural and Remote Physical Therapists

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.

Click here to open or download an application form with further information. Complete it and send it to spaadmin@saskphysio.org by September 30, 2024. The winner will be notified via email. Good luck!
