PHTA is Now Accepting Applications for Foundation Fellowship Program

Seeking to improve public health by creating a safer aquatic environment and by attracting more people to aquatic exercise through education and research, the Fellowship Program exists to encourage and support graduate students and post-doctoral fellows who focus research in two areas associated with aquatic venues where water is treated to maintain a sanitary condition (e.g. swimming pools, spas/hot tubs, therapy pools, water parks, etc.):

  1. Research to reduce the risk to people associated with, but not limited to, physical facility design, exposure to chemical or pathogenic contaminants, air quality, drowning, or entrapment, etc.
  2. Research to investigate and document the positive health consequences of aquatic activities against maladies such as, but not limited to, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, heart disease, cancer, aging, physical therapy, arthritis, etc.

 The following scholarship awards are available. Recipients of specific awards will be determined by PHTA after reviewing all applications.
