The Orthotic and Prosthetic Education and Research Foundation (OPERF) was established to raise the standards of education and research in the O&P profession. Practicing O&P professionals founded the organization to meet the ever-changing needs of the field.
OPERF will award grants to promote research in the profession with the goal of providing the best possible care to patients in need of O&P care. The Foundation will also assist students currently attending or entering O&P education programs by providing competitive grants and awards as they pursue careers as O&P professionals, faculty or researchers in the field.
