The American Speech-Language-Hearing Foundation is now accepting applications and grant proposals for the 2011 New Century Scholars Program. Awards of $10,000 are available to doctoral students and teacher-investigators in communications sciences and disorders (CSD).
Now in its ninth year, this special initiative, funded by the ASHFoundation’s Dreams and Possibilities Campaign, supports CSD doctoral education and research. In the past eight years, 63 doctoral candidates and 28 teacher-investigators have received $910,000 in New Century Program scholarships and grants.

Research Grants
Up to five $10,000 grants for one- or two-year investigations are available to support innovative research by individuals committed to teacher-investigator careers in academia or external research institutes or laboratories. Selection criteria include the applicant’s ability and the research proposal methodology and feasibility. Funding supports the actual investigation and may not be used for indirect costs.
Eligible applicants must submit an official application packet and research proposal. To be eligible, applicants must have received a PhD or equivalent research doctorate within CSD and must demonstrate the potential for and commitment to significant independent research that is directly applicable to communication sciences and disorders. The research setting must be conducive to completing the investigation. The deadline for grant proposal submissions is April 29.
Doctoral Scholarships
Up to 10 scholarships will be awarded to doctoral candidates planning to pursue a teacher-investigator career in higher education. Selection criteria include the applicant’s potential for doctoral study and ability to complete a doctoral program, as well as the student’s commitment to a career as a teacher-investigator. Scholarships may be used for educational support, such as tuition, books, school-related expenses, or living expenses.
Eligible applicants must submit an official application packet. To be eligible, students must be accepted or enrolled in a CSD research doctoral program (PhD or equivalent; includes new PhD, continuing PhD, bachelor’s-to-PhD, and professionals returning to school). Students must be a member of ASHA or the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association at the time of application. The deadline for scholarship application submission is May 2.
Application Guidelines
Application materials, information, and profiles of past recipients are available at the ASHFoundation website or by calling 800-498-2071, ext. 8703. Applicants are urged to request required institutional documentation as soon as possible to allow university personnel time to process paperwork before the deadline. No extensions will be granted; no fax copies will be accepted. Awards will be distributed in November at the 2011 ASHA Convention in San Diego.
