ASHA’s Research Mentoring Network offers three programs to help researchers at different career stages develop their communication sciences and disorders (CSD) research careers. Apply for the one that’s right for you.
Pathways
(Dec. 1 application deadline)
This entry-level program helps clinically trained early-career researchers (including post-doctoral fellows and dissertation-stage PhD students) develop strong foundations for independent research careers. No prior grant-writing experience is required.
The program opens June 13–14, 2016, with a conference at ASHA’s national office in Rockville, Maryland. Mentors will provide information on designing a five-year career plan, building a publication record, identifying early-career funding mechanisms and other topics. The program was established with support of a U24 grant from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD).
Mentors work with their protégés to develop and accomplish year-long goals. The 2014 participants achieved many of their goals: 56 percent submitted a total of 14 manuscripts and 38 percent submitted an extramural research grant proposal. Visit the Pathways program Web page for more details.
Lessons for Success
(Jan. 12 deadline)
This program helps prepare early-career researchers (including post-doctoral fellows and dissertation-stage PhD students) who have previously submitted a successful or unsuccessful extramural research grant proposal to compete successfully for federal research funding.
At an April 18–20, 2016, meeting at ASHA’s national office, mentors will provide training on the grantsmanship skills and professional competencies required to succeed in a research career. The program of lectures, mock reviews, roundtable discussions and small-group sessions is supported by an NIDCD U13 grant.
Clinical Practice Research Institute
(Jan. 26 deadline)
This program helps early and mid-career researchers prepare grant applications that support clinical practice research—studies of service delivery methods and outcomes—critical to supporting evidence-based CSD practice. Applicants must have submitted a successful or unsuccessful federal research grant proposal.
Participants work with chosen collaborators and/or consultants to develop and complete a grant proposal. Scientists new to or ready to scale up clinical practice research are encouraged to apply. Visit the Clinical Practice Research Institute program Web page for more details.
