Communication sciences and disorders students interested in faculty-researcher careers and junior-level faculty interested in advancing their careers, are invited to apply for funds to help support mentored teaching and research activities. The application deadline is May 15. Since 2004, ASHA has helped 164 students and junior faculty develop and sustain successful academic research careers through two programs.
SPARC focuses on fostering students' interest in PhD education and careers as academic faculty. Up to 10 SPARC awards of $1,000 each will be given in 2013. Current CSD faculty are urged to encourage their undergraduate and graduate speech-language pathology and audiology students to apply to the program, which lets students learn about teaching and research while working closely with faculty mentors. SPARC applicants must submit a mentored teaching and research plan and, if selected for the award, must complete interim and final reports. See "SPARCing Careers in Research and Academia" for the stories of two SPARC recipients. To learn more about the SPARC Award go to the ASHA website.
AARC is designed to help retain and promote junior-level CSD faculty. Six AARC awards of $5,000 each are planned for 2013. AARC applicants work with mentors to develop mentored teaching and research plans tailored to the applicant's career www. Applicants must develop and submit detailed teaching and research plans to be completed over 18 months under the guidance of their mentors. Of the 42 faculty who received their awards more than three years ago, almost all remain in academic positions and most have been promoted to associate professor.
As clinical practice research is needed to support evidence-based practice in CSD, two AARC awards are dedicated to applications that focus on teaching and conducting clinical practice research, which focuses on the prevention, diagnostics, treatment, implementation research and outcomes measurement of communication and related disorders.
To learn more about AARC go to the ASHA website or contact the Academic Affairs and Research Education team at academicaffairs@asha.org.
