Clinical Research Deadline: April 25
The ASHFoundation will award Clinical Research Grants, ranging from $50,000 to $75,000, to up to three researchers conducting one- to two-year clinical studies. The grants are designed to help build the capacity to develop and evaluate evidence-based practices in communication sciences and disorders.
Eligible investigators are invited to submit proposals for mentored, independent or collaborative treatment proposals for clinical research studies on the efficacy of treatment and assessment practices in audiology or speech-language pathology.
New Century Scholars Research Deadline: May 1
Up to 10 grants of $10,000 will support one- or two-year investigations by scholars committed to teacher-investigator careers in academia or external research institutes or laboratories. Selection criteria include the investigator’s ability and the methodology and feasibility of the research proposal.
Eligible investigators must demonstrate the potential for and commitment to significant independent CSD-related research.
New Investigators Research Deadline: May 1
Up to 10 grants of $10,000 each will support new researchers (those who have received doctoral degrees within the past five years). Proposals should have clinical relevance to audiology and/or speech-language pathology; proposals in the area of treatment research are especially encouraged.
Eligible investigators may not have received prior research funding, except for internal university funding. Proposals must be for research that has not yet begun.
Speech Science Research Deadline: May 1
One grant of $5,000 will support a new investigator in the area of speech communication. This biennial grant is supported by an endowment fund in memory of Dennis Klatt, noted researcher and scientist, and is intended to promulgate his work in speech perception, synthesis and acoustics.
Although the field of the researcher’s degree is not restricted, proposals must be to initiate new research or supplement an existing research project in speech science.
