ASHA recently presented six faculty members and 11 students with its annual awards designed to promote academic research careers and help reduce the shortage of PhD-level faculty in communication sciences and disorders.
Advancing Academic Research Careers
AARC awards encourage junior-level CSD faculty to continue in higher education. Each recipient receives $5,000 to implement mentored teaching and research activities that might include incorporating new technologies, theories or opportunities into their teaching; learning a new research skill; conducting a pilot study; writing a grant proposal; and presenting or publishing research findings.
Since 2012, ASHA has expanded AARC funding to include two additional awards specifically for clinical practice research needed to support evidence-based practice.
The 2014 AARC winners, all assistant professors, are Danielle Brimo, Texas Christian University; Maria Dietrich, University of Missouri; Kelly Farquharson, Emerson College; Lizbeth Finestack, University of Minnesota; Jiyeon Lee, Purdue University; and Sonja Molfenter, New York University.
Students Preparing for Academic Research Careers
SPARC helps prepare students for success in their PhD education and subsequent academic careers by allowing them to engage in teaching and research activities with an experienced mentor. SPARC recipients receive $1,000 to implement teaching and research mentoring plans. This year, a record-breaking 40 students from 32 universities submitted applications.

Undergraduate recipients are Marren Brooks, University of South Carolina; Alexandra Perrault, University of Cincinnati; Lei Su, Northwestern University; and Emily Thompson, University of Connecticut.
